Note on the sale. NSA ram sales around the country pride themselves in selling high quality animals that are independently inspected for testicles, teeth and general health by an NSA-approved inspector. NSA South East Region is committed to taking this one step further with this sale being for MV-accredited rams only, giving buyers an additional level of assurance. Unlike for many iceberg diseases, an accessible accreditation scheme is available for MV and NSA South East Region supports breeders’ involvement in the programme to contribute towards health standards within the national flock.

NSA South East Region acknowledges the support of Elanco Animal Helath and MSD Animal Health in making the sale possible.
