The industry forums, organised jointly by Barclays and the RABDF, will be chaired by Barclays agricultural specialist Oliver McEntyre.

“Each day will see a chance to fire questions at industry experts at the Barclays RABDF industry forums at 11.00am,” said Mr McEntyre.

Livestock-logoRABDF chief executive Nick Everington said: “We are pleased to be able to add two forums that will provide dairy, beef and sheep farmers with the opportunity to express their views on current hot topics, and in turn hear industry influencers’ responses.”

The Livestock Event will be held at the NEC, Birmingham, on 8 and 9 July.
