Our History

NSA was founded in 1892 as the National Sheep Breeders Association. The Association began as a forum for progressive breeders to discuss their respective views and improve the breeding management of sheep, as well as providing a strong and common voice for the industry. Over the next 70 years the association took on a broader role and its title changed to its present form in 1969 to reflect the more comprehensive work of the organisation and its representation of both pedigree and non-pedigree producers in all aspects of the sheep sector. NSA receives no Government funding or levies on meat or wool, relying instead almost entirely on the annual subscription of its farmer-based membership.
