AHDB has unveiled Talking Beef 2019, a series of one-day technical events looking at key areas of beef production.
The events will cover a range of topics in both classroom and field-based workshops with interactive sessions and Q&As throughout the day, including expert speakers from AHDB, independent consultants and industry partners. The topics include beef profitability drivers, grassland and soils, beef health, nutrition, plus a technology village showcasing the very latest in innovation and technology.
Joseph Keating, senior Knowledge Exchange Manager at AHDB, said: “The Beef & Lamb Knowledge Exchange team has focused on using feedback from farmers to shape events to suit their needs. We’ve noticed a significant uplift in attendees, and we’re thrilled more people are taking time to attend.
“We understand it can be difficult to get time away from farm, so the Talking Beef events last the full day but allow us to cover a larger range of topics than at a project specific event. We hope the cattle focus will be valuable to our farmers and we’re excited to trial a new style of event.”
The one-day events are taking place in three locations:
- September 4, 10am-4pm, Brooksby Melton College, Leicestershire;
- September 11, 10am-4pm, Newcastle University Farm, Northumberland; and
- September 18, 10am-4pm, The Rural Innovation Centre, Gloucestershire.
