This annual event, organised by the National Beef Association and held at a different venue each year, is now firmly established as the major technical event for the UK beef industry and attracts thousands of beef producers from all over the country and overseas.

The 2007 event will follow the successful format developed over recent years and will include an extensive trade stand area, beef breed demonstrations, commercial cattle show, educational and advisory exhibits, practical demonstrations of livestock machinery and a comprehensive seminar programme. The theme chosen for the event is "Action for Profit".

On the day before Beef Expo, visitors will have the opportunity of viewing four prominent Yorkshire beef farms followed by a pre-event conference and dinner.

"We see no reason to change the basic format which has been fine-tuned over the years and has proved highly successful," said event organiser, Euan Emslie. "But we are constantly looking for innovative new ideas to make Beef Expo even more relevant and worthwhile for beef producers at a time of constant change in the industry."

Skipton Mart is an ideal venue for the event with an auction ring which can quickly be transformed into a conference auditorium with highly sophisticated sound and lighting systems.

The organisation of the event is in the hands of a local committee under the chairmanship of leading Limousin breeder, Jim Bloom, Decoy Farm, Scorborough, Driffield - who is also chairman of the technical committee of the British Limousin Cattle Society - with Aberdeen-Angus breeder, Henry Rowntree, Windy Pike, Carter's Lane, Gisburn, Clitheroe, Lancashire, as vice-chairman.
