Lisa Adams, a 32-year-old sheep farmer from Bury St Edmunds, is among 12 chosen by the National Sheep Association (NSA) for its 2017 Next Generation Ambassador programme.

The scheme, part of a wider programme, combines training to enhance personal development and business skills with technical sessions to increase knowledge of the sheep sector and involves developing a close working relationship with the NSA.

NSA communications manager Joanne Briggs said: “It was fantastic to hear from so many worthy candidates this year, and with the standard of entrants is rising year on year, these young people really are a credit to the industry. Some very tough decisions were made during the interview process.

“Thanks to the continued funding of NSA regions and ram sales and support of several delivery partners, NSA is thrilled to be embarking on the fourth year of the programme.”
