Beef and sheep farmers will be able to keep up-to-date with the latest legislative and political issues impacting on their sector via a new EBLEX blog.

The Beef and Lamb Matters blog has been launched to ensure levy payers are kept informed of industry developments in an “accessible and cost-effective way”.

EBLEX communications manager James Wilde said: “Part of EBLEX’s role is to ensure that levy payers are kept abreast of issues that affect the industry so they can make informed business decisions.

“We felt that using a blog to explain emerging issues, changes in legislation and any political issues that affect the beef and sheep sector would help us fulfil that function.”
