ELECTRONIC tagging, the presentation of clean cattle, pregnancy diagnosis, computerised feeding and electronic scanning for muscle depth, will be among the practical demonstrations featured at Beef 98 on June 5.
The event will be staged on behalf of the National Cattle Association at Balbuthie Farm in Fife, home of John Cameron, chairman of the Scottish Beef Council.
Event chairman Drew Adam of Forfar, forecasts continued hard times for beef farmers.
All producers will need to to increase efficiency of their farming businesses through the adoption of modern technology.
"Quality assurance will also feature. The main thrust of the event will be the production of beef to meet modern trade and consumer requirements," says Mr Adam.
