The National Beef Association has announced that Beef Expo will be held on Thursday, 23rd May 2019 at North West Auctions, J36 Rural Auction Centre, Kendal. Farmers, exhibitors, agricultural companies and interested members of the public use the annual event to network, do business and share knowledge.
Over the years the NBA Beef Expo has become a highlight in the beef farming calendar, says the Association. Representing all the industry has to offer in terms of new developments, breeding expertise and celebrating the work of all beef farmers across the UK regardless of breed or method. The event attracts experts and industry leaders looking to educate both the farming community and the public, encouraging respect and innovation from all corners of the market.
Beef Expo is considered a major showcase for pedigree and commercial breed societies which want to promote the quality of their cattle. Thanks to this, the event displays some of the finest examples of British breeding anywhere in the UK. Over 20 breed society displays will showcase the pedigree sectors advances in genetics and the National Commercial Cattle Show (NCCS) will, as always, be kicking of the showing season with the ultimate podium for breeders from across the UK to showcase their stock and compete for their share of over £6,000 of prize money.
The show, which is the largest technical beef event in the UK, will encompass the entirety of the beef industry with over 120 indoor and outdoor trade stands and demonstrations, covering nutrition, genetics, machinery and technologies, highlighting the strength and progression of the industry.
Event organiser Katie Pearson said: “We are delighted to be able to host our event at NW Auctions this year, the state-of-the-art mart facilities are superb and a perfect back drop to what is set to be one of our largest Beef Expo’s to date”
Visitors will be invited to join the NBA for a day of Beef Expo farm tours on Wednesday 22nd May, giving guests the opportunity to view three exceptional beef farms hand-picked from across the region. This forum for knowledge exchange has sold out for four years running and is not to be missed – early booking is highly recommended! The farm tours will be followed by the prestigious Beef Expo Industry Dinner, the ultimate networking event for those within the industry.
