Supporting this year’s top quality livestock classes are a host of trade stands, plus promising networking opportunities.
Set to take place the day after the current Brexit deadline, this year’s Borderway Agri-Expo is sure to provide a major platform for discussion and debate on Friday, November 1, at Borderway Mart, Carlisle.
This year the event will see 57 classes and five breed society shows get underway.
Visitors can expect to see about 900-head of cattle and sheep on show, with entries attracted from the length and breadth of the country to take part in the commercial cattle and sheep classes, alongside the several breed society shows.
In addition to the showring competitions, the event will also host a range of trade stands in its exhibition area, showcasing machinery and equipment, livestock handling Breed society shows and management systems, as well as the newly introduced ‘gift ring’.
Promising networking opportunities and an educational showcase, the area is set to provide a platform of information for visitors on the wider agricultural industry, genetics and job opportunities.
Visitors can also expect a butchery demonstration from AHDB master butcher Martin Eccles, to be held immediately after the sheep judging in the sheep ring.
Harrison and Hetherington’s joint managing director and event organiser David Pritchard says: “Borderway Agri-Expo continues to grow in its success and we are proud to be able to promote and celebrate the agricultural industry through this unique platform.
“Representatives from all walks of the agricultural sector can join us to have a conversation about current trends and issues, gain knowledge on new innovations and technologies and network with like-minded individuals.
“With Brexit looming, this year more than any other, will be a chance to consider the impact and how we can future-proof ourselves as an industry for the next generation of farming and beyond.”
