About the event

Join us for an evening walk and discussion with sheep farmer and NSA Regional Development Officer Edward Adamson. The walk will provide an opportunity to look at the recent establishment of multispecies swards on the farm in order to cut input costs as well as the latest investment in technology to improve labour efficiency. We will also get to hear about the many ways Edward and his son have added value to the business including through the breeding of dutch-spotted sheep for export around the world.
