NSA Welsh Sheep 2013 was staged on Tuesday, 21st May 2013 at Beili Ficer Farm, Llansawel, near Llandeilo. The results of the competitions are available by clicking here.
Hosts Sion and Claire Williams, along with their son Harri, took on the 10-year tenancy of the 255-acre farm in 2010. They rent another 150 acres, and own a further 20 acres. The couple have taken advantage of grant aid, IT and relevant industry schemes and initiatives.
Their goal is to produce what the market wants from their mixed flock of 1,200 Mule, Texel Mule and Aberdale ewes, by maximising lamb production off grass and kilograms of lamb sold per ewe.
They are delighted with the farm business tenancy granted by brothers Alfor and Elwyn Thomas, who own the farm and are committed to helping other aspiring young farmers realise their dreams to farm in their own right.
