The National Sheep Association (NSA) is ramping up its work in highlighting the issue of sheep worrying by dogs.

NSA will increase efforts during a week-long awareness campaign in March.

This time frame often sees rises in sheep attacks, with increased daylight leading to more rural walks.

Farmers may feel the stress as lambing season coincides with this period, resulting in more vulnerable livestock.

NSA is collaborating with police rural crime teams, gathering data to bolster policy and prevent attacks.

NSA chief executive Phil Stocker will share campaign findings on Monday, March 25 at 12pm.
