Beef conference date set for November

Wednesday, 12 October, 2016

The Ulster Farmers’ Union, CAFRE, LMC and AFBI have confirmed arrangements for their ‘Progressive Beef Production’ conference.  This will take place on Thursday November 17th at Greenmount.

Beef production makes a significant contribution to the agri-food industry and our rural environment.  To ensure that the sector has a viable future, consideration must be given to all elements of current production systems. The objectives of the conference are to highlight what the industry currently does well, but also to identify potential areas for improvement.

Progress in beef production is the focus of the conference, with speakers from both practical farming and research backgrounds.  Speakers and those attending will share their knowledge of how best to deliver a 'progressive beef production' model.  The conference will be the first agricultural event that can be used as a ‘qualifier meeting’ for those involved in beef business development groups (BDGs).

The conference is open to all with an interest in beef production. The fee is £20 and bookings are encouraged online. Bookings can also be made with Angela Scott at UFU HQ on 028 9037 0222. Those involved in beef BDGs should have their group number available when booking.
