Mole Valley Farmers has announced the launch of a new event for its shareholders, members and farming customers.
The farmer-owned business’s inaugural Farmer Expo – to be held on Wednesday, January 31, from 9am-4pm at the Matford Centre in Exeter – will provide the opportunity to meet with over 50 of the industry’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of animal health products, timber and fencing supplies, milk replacers, dairy hygiene products, cattle handling equipment and much more.
Suppliers will discuss their latest products, innovations and services to help farmers plan for the season ahead and take advantage of many unique and exclusive show day deals.
Key members of the Mole Valley Farmers’ technical and commercial teams will also be on hand to meet with farmers and offer help and advice.
And the expo will include seminars with speakers from across the sector and from Mole Valley Farmers.
The speakers will cover the latest market trends and developments alongside more detailed information on topics including nutrition, soil management and reducing farm carbon footprints.
Sam Holdstock, head of sales at Mole Valley Farmers, said: “Through cooperation and collaboration with our suppliers we are perfectly placed to help our farmers plan for the year ahead and take advantage of great value products and industry leading advice and expertise.
“The day will offer something for all farm types and systems with the opportunity to talk to our suppliers and quiz them on their products and services. We’re also excited by our seminar programme that will feature industry and technical experts.
“There will be lots of special and exclusive show deals as well, so it provides a really good opportunity to plan for the season ahead, secure some great prices and get expert advice to help with the core aims of improving productivity, profitability and sustainability.”
Tickets are free with complimentary bacon rolls on arrival and a hot lunch.
Mole Valley Farmers said it would like to thank all suppliers supporting the event including the headline sponsors M&M timber, Cargill, Strathclyde Nutrition, Nukamel, IAE, Nettex and Deosan.
