“Entering couldn’t be more straightforward,” said Jake Davies, Poultry World editor. “Visit either our stand [35], or Arden’s at number 241 and ask for an entrance form.

“At our stand you will have the chance to meet the team that produces Poultry World, and we plan a subscription offer – with a free gift – that’s exclusive to the fair.”

As newly appointed editor, Mr Davies added: “I’m looking forward to meeting as wide a cross-section of the poultry sector as possible – and getting views on the magazine.

“We always welcome reader and customer feedback.”

Chris Stanford, managing director of Arden Wood Shavings, said he was delighted to be partnering with Poultry World for a second fair competition.

“Arden has been supplying quality bedding to the poultry market for more than 30 years.”

“Our blended shavings product, Safemix has been very successful since it was pioneered by Arden, and plays a key role in keeping the nation’s commercial chicken and turkey flocks clean, dry and healthy.”
