COMPUTERS AND CAKES

THE Cyber café is an RASE feature in association with the British Cattle Movement Service, the Institute of Agricultural Secretaries and Administrators and Farmers Weekly Interactive.

It is a relaxed area which will offer independent, non-commercial advice on the use of computers, what they can do for your business and how they work.

There will be plenty of PCs available and plenty of supervisors to assist first-timers.

The Institute of Agricultural Secretaries and Administrators will be on hand to help people get to grips with the basics of internet use, introducing the opportunities that the internet provides.

There will also be information on the range of internet access packages that are available through Farmersweekly.net, from pay as you go to fixed monthly call plans

The British Cattle Movement Service will be outlining their online Cattle Transfer System, how they plan to make the move to electronic recording over the next two years and how this will affect the industry.

All this will be alongside a refreshment station offering coffees, cakes and pastries within the centre of the IT section at AgriVision.
