If you’re looking for a new drier, handling system or even to update your existing facilities, it would be well worth heading to the UK Grain event at Newark Showground on 3 November.

All the main grain storage, cleaning and drying firms will be present and there will be a full programme of seminars and grain clinics for advice.

Seminar Programme

  • 10am – Boosting the capacity of on-farm storage – Kent grower Andrew Cragg discusses practical ways in which he has increased his on-farm grain storage without the expense of new facilities. 11am – What is the future for the grain market? – Neil Cameron, Bidwells‘ agribusiness consultant looks at prospects for this season and the forthcoming year’s crop.
  • 12pm – Options for storage and marketing: Gary Markham, Grant Thornton
  • 1pm – Better management for faster, cheaper drying – Andrew Kneeshaw from the Farm Energy Centre offers tips on to ensure your drier is working to its full potential.
  • 2pm – TASCC – Assuring the grain trade – Garry Rudd, AIC, looks at AIC and its trade assurance schemes including TASCC (Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops).


Direct Talk

Even if you don’t manage to make it to the UK Grain event, there’s still a chance to put your questions to our three grain storage experts.

From 23 October to 6 November, there will be a Direct Talk facility in the Farmers Weekly website – www.fwi.co.uk– where you can post your question on a special Direct Talk forum.

It will be monitored regularly by our three-man panel and they’ll do their best to give you a helpful answer. Just go to http://www.fwi.co.uk/directtalkgrain– you’ll be able to put your own question or see other farmers’ questions and the answers they were given.

So one way or another it should be interesting stuff.
