A key figure in British Agriculture, Mrs Sedgewick has won countless awards for her own stock, both sheep and cattle, and has been instrumental in establishing annual NSA events in the farming calendar in both England and Scotland.

NSA members will be welcome to the association’s key meeting of the year, which takes place at Hexham Mart’s Tynedale Function Suite, at 7.30pm.
