A day-long series of nine 20-minute seminars on a range of practical issues, concluding with a panel discussion in “Question Time” format, will be one of the major features at Beef Expo 2006.

The UK’s annual national beef event is being held at Harrison and Hetherington’s Borderway Mart, Carlisle on Friday, June 2, and is being organised by the National Beef Association.

“We have a galaxy of speakers who are recognised experts in their own fields and visitors will be able to “match and mix” the seminars they wish to attend,” said Ian Watson, chairman of the Beef Expo organising committee. “The format is a short, sharp presentation from the speaker, followed by a question and answer session, with the whole session taking no more than 30 minutes, leaving visitors plenty of time to view all the other activities which make Beef Expo such an important event for the beef industry.”

Subjects to be covered by the seminars (programme attached) will range from animal health and nutrition to the prospects for exporting both beef and live cattle.

The day’s programme will conclude at 3.30 p.m. with a “Question time” chaired by Alan Bowe, chairman of the Harrison and Hetherington Group. The panel members will be Robert Forster, chief executive of the National Beef Association, Peter Kendal, president of the National Farmers Union, John Cross, chairman of EBLEX, and Norman Bagley, policy director, AIMS.

Mainline sponsors of Beef Expo 2006 are Harrison and Hetherington, Dugdale Nutrition, EBLEX, Intervet, Keenan and Yara.
