The UK’s largest technical beef event will take place at Darlington Farmers Auction Market’s new state-of-the-art centre in 2022, after a two-year break due to the pandemic.
The 2022 NBA Beef Expo will return to the farming calendar on Saturday, May 28, 2022, taking a new weekend format in a bid to make the event more accessible to visitors.
NBA chief executive Neil Shand said: “The NBA is delighted to be able to hold its flagship event at the new auction, business and conference centre, and we’re delighted to be face-to-face with key industry organisations, businesses, producers and NBA members after a two-year hiatus.
“We hope the Saturday event, due to working around busy market days, will mean more visitors will be able to attend and benefit from the event.”
A spokesman for Darlington Farmers Auction Market said that the whole team is excited to welcome Beef Expo to Darlington Farmers Auction Mart.
Drawing in 5,000 beef farmers annually, the NBA Beef Expo is considered a major showcase for pedigree and commercial breed societies who want to promote the quality of their cattle. The event will also host the National Commercial Cattle Show and the South Devon Performance Championships.
Mr Shand added: “We already have 61 stands committed to the event for next year, and are looking forward to welcoming many more. The seminar schedule this year will focus on industry sustainability and animal health and welfare, with a number of guest speakers.”
