Calling all beef farmers and beef cattle enthusiasts.
The UK’s National Beef Association’s Beef Expo will be held on Thursday 17th May at Skipton Auction Mart.
This is an annual event that has grown in popularity over the last 10 years.
The 1 day event will include;
- A trade stand area with 150 stands.
- 23 beef breed demonstrations.
- A commercial cattle show.
- Educational exhibits.
- Practical demonstrations of livestock machinery.
- Advisory exhibits.
- A seminar programme.
The theme of this year’s expo is ‘Action for Profit’.
When the single farm payment scheme came into effect, beef farmers where no longer able to claim farm subsidies based on the production of their beef cattle. This had an adverse affect on the profit many farmers made from their herd and so in turn made the farmers question the point of raising their beef cattle at all. The 2007 Beef expo aims to highlight the need for farmers to take action in order to increase profitability from their herd. The event will place emphasis on;
- Animal health.
- Efficiency of production.
- Achieving profitability.
On the day before the event, delegates may also visit a number of beef farms followed by a pre-event conference and dinner.
