    Diet Feeder and Straw Chopper Demos at Beef Expo 2006

A continuous working demonstration of Total Mixed Ration (TMR) diet feeders and straw choppers will be a feature of the UK’s national beef event, Beef Expo 2006, at Borderway Mart, Carlisle, on Friday, June 2.

A total of eight machines will be demonstrated at 20-minute intervals throughout the day mixing baled silage, straw and a protein supplement.

“The demonstration will give farmers a unique opportunity to assess these feeder wagons in real practical conditions rather than simply sitting on a stand as at most shows,” said Beef Expo organiser, Euan Emslie.

“This is the highest number of machines we have had on demonstration at a Beef Event and indicates the growing interest among beef farmers in TMR feeding.”

Beef Expo 2006 is expected to attract several thousand beef producers from all over the UK and Ireland as well as visitors from overseas. The annual event is organised by the National Beef Association. Mainline sponsors this year are Harrison and Hetherington Ltd, who are hosting the event at Borderway Mart, Dugdale Nutrition, EBLEX, Intervet, Keenan and Yara.

Other features of Beef Expo 2006 will include a new National Suckled Calf Show, educational exhibits, beef breed displays, stockjudging, seminars and trade stands, with the emphasis on performance, health, efficiency of production, profitability and marketing.

On the day before the event, Thursday, June 1, there is an opportunity to visit three Cumbrian beef farmers followed by a major beef conference and pre-event dinner.
