The Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and British Livestock Genetics Consortium (BLG) are lending their support to a number of overseas expos and Inward Missions aimed at helping UK farming and livestock breeding organisations to promote their services on a global stage.

Inward Missions are being planned for groups of overseas visitors to attend the National Beef Association (NBA) Beef Expo & National Sheep Association (NSA) Sheep Event respectively.

Beef Expo brings together the very best in British commercial and pedigree cattle, equipment, knowledge-sharing, and show classes for everyone involved in the industry. Regularly attracting international visitors and exhibitors from around UK, it is the number one showcase for the British beef sector. It will be held in Bakewell on 20th May with farm tours and a gala dinner taking place on the 19th.

Preparations are in-hand for what promises to be another hugely successful NSA Sheep Event. With the theme ‘Adding Value’, the premier event in the sector will showcase all that is great about sheep farming, from the best services and products to industry best practice and cutting edge innovation. Malvern is the venue on 27th July.

A British Livestock Genetics stand will again be arranged at this year’s Irish National Ploughing Championships to be held in Screggan, Tullamore, Co Offaly, Republic of Ireland 20th – 22nd September. British beef, sheep and pig breeding associations and genetics companies are invited to display literature at this prestigious event which last year saw an attendance in excess of 280,000 with over 1,500 exhibitors.

Eurotier, which takes place in Hannover, Germany, will once more host a British Livestock presence. Held every two years, this is the world’s largest indoor agricultural exhibition boasting 150,000+ visitors and over 2,300 exhibitors – half of which are international companies. As such, Eurotier provides UK companies with a platform for promoting their sector to a global market.
