Under 27
Individual Membership


Are you an individual with an interest and / or involvement in the sheep sector?

This is a class of membership open to all individuals resident in the UK, aged 27 years or over who want to support NSA’s vision of ensuring those keeping sheep are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and aspiring to best practice, and those not keeping sheep being increasingly aware of the contribution sheep make to society and of the core aspects of the sector.

Individual Membership + Annual Donation

£70 + donation of your choice

Do you value the work NSA does on behalf of the UK sheep industry?

NSA is reliant on membership subscriptions and therefore invites existing members to voluntarily over-pay on their annual fee to further support the vital work of the organisation. Choose to give a donation of £20, £40 or £60 per year to NSA, and make this go even further by adding Gift Aid to your subscription.

Under 27’s Membership


Are you aged under 27 with an interest and / or involvement in the sheep sector?

This is a variation on individual membership, for members aged under 27 years old. In line with NSA’s dedication to encouraging and supporting the sheep farmers and service providers of the future, the fee is half that of standard individual NSA membership.

Joint Membership


Are there two people in your household with an interest in the sheep farming enterprise?

Joint membership allows two people living at the same address to both receive the NSA Weekly Email Update, share a copy of Sheep Farmer magazine and both gain free (or discounted) entry to NSA Sheep Events – all for just £10 more per year than an individual subscription.

International Membership


Do you live outside of the UK?

This is a class of membership open to all individuals living outside of the UK with an interest in the work of NSA.

Membership Benefits

Why be an NSA member?

The number one benefit of NSA subscription is ensuring our organisation continues to support individual sheep farming businesses and support/work for the whole UK sheep industry. Other benefits of being an NSA member are linked to the work we do to provide top quality technical information, events and services.
