One-stop Stand at Beef Expo to Support Britain's Beef Farmers

21 May 2013

UK - At this week’s Beef Expo 2013 (Thursday 23 May) farmers will be able to get information and advice from Natural England staff and see exhibits and meet representatives from other organisations on a joint ‘one-stop’ information stand.

Natural England advisers will be on hand throughout the event, providing farmers with a single information point to get up-to-date information and have their questions answered. Our advisers will be delighted to meet visitors to Beef Expo and to answer any queries, provide information and advice. You can find us on stand No. 44 in the large marquee.

The stand also features exhibits staffed by representatives from the British Cattle Movement Service, Rural Payments Agency, Forestry Commission, Animal Health & Veterinary Laboratories Agency and Catchment Sensitive Farming.

Beef Expo is a great opportunity for farmers to catch up with the latest activity from the Catchment Sensitive Farming (CSF) initiative, which offers a wide range of practical support, advice and training for farmers and land managers.

The training workshop and free advice visits offered by the Catchment Sensitive Farming team can bring better business efficiency and help farmers manage their costs, while at the same time bringing positive environmental outcomes.

The free, innovative advice on offer covers a wide range of topics from information on nutrient management, planning and soil husbandry, to details of the latest developments in fertilizer spreader calibration and soil and water management.

This year’s Beef Expo event takes place on Thursday 23 May at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern. Doors open at 9am.
