2022 Agri Expo
Organisers of the Borderway Agri Expo have confirmed that this year’s event will go ahead.
The event, now in its sixteenth year, will take part at Borderway Mart, Carlisle on Friday, October 28th, 2022.
According to organisers of one of the UK’s largest livestock events, this is “important” for all sectors of the beef and sheep industries.
They believe the event is a “sought-after showcase for” some of the UK’s finest quality beef cattle and sheep.
However, it puts the spotlight on the latest industry products, practices, and innovations.
The expo regularly attracts some 10,000 visitors.
They pass through the gates to admire the dozens of commercial cattle and sheep classes and individual breed society shows.
Visitors are also keen to meet with their suppliers to gather information to help support and streamline their own businesses.
A new addition last year was a series of seminars hosted by H&H Land & Estates. According to organisers, they were “extremely” popular last year and will be another attraction of the forthcoming show.
To further highlight the expo’s global reputation, it will be live-streamed to audiences across the world.
In a statement, Scott Donaldson, managing director at Harrison & Hetherington, commented:
“Borderway Agri Expo is a wonderful way for the industry to get together and network.”
“It is always useful to talk with people who are facing the same challenges and opportunities, and to learn from each other.”
“Last year, we had Neil Shand, the chief executive of the National Beef Association and Phil Stocker, chief executive of the National Sheep Association, speaking.”
“They gave great insights into UK consumption trends and how they see the future of livestock trading shaping up.”
“It is so fulfilling to see our event go from strength to strength and to get such positive feedback from exhibitors, sponsors, and visitors.”
“I urge everyone involved in livestock farming, on whatever scale, to come along and experience Borderway Agri Expo for themselves,” Donaldson concluded.
