Platform for industry debate: Everything you need to know about Agri-Expo 2019

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’.

 

Networking

 

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.
