Extravaganza Returns To Exeter

Created: Thursday 23 April 2015

The National Beef Association’s Specialist one day event Beef South West is set to return to Westpoint Exeter on Wednesday 11th November 2015.

“By holding the event on an annual basis it is hoped it will become a major calendar event”, said Event Chairman, Robert Venner, partner at Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

 Elected at the National Beef Association South West’s recent AGM, Robert takes over the chair from Jono Cole who had been chairman since 2010

Kicking off the winter show season, the event’s Primestock show has Judges coming from Hereford and Cumbria to cast their eye over the quality line up of both, pedigree and commercial cattle.

The cattle and Breed Societies area will now be housed in the main hall; this will be huge improvement on previous years.

The demonstration area will be expanded, so visitors will get the chance to see the latest feeding and handling equipment in operation.

In the conference theatre, following the press briefing and event launch, visitors will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts covering, processing, marketing, retail and health.

 The finale of the event will be at 3pm with the parade of champions and presentations of prizes to include the Beef South West Farm Management Competition *New for 2015*

 “We are very grateful to all our sponsors,” said Vicky Smith, National Beef Association South West and Event Secretary

“Without their support we would not be able to run an event like this, where we can showcase the very best of beef breeding and production in our region, which has now been granted PGI status “.

Bookings can now be made on the recently updated website www.beefsouthwest.co.uk or for further information contact Vicky: 01392 882153 email: natbeefsw@gmail.com
