The Livestock Event: 450 trade stands, more livestock, latest technology


All dairy, beef and sheep farmers seeking how to improve their units’ efficiency and profitability and enjoy a day away from the farm at Livestock Event, to be staged at The NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 July.

The event which will be officially opened on the first morning by farm minister, George Eustice MP, will be featuring over 450 trade stands all under one roof, and provide the most comprehensive offering of any UK event, says event organiser, RABDF chief executive, Nick Everington. It will include the latest technology with more than 100 new products, combined with timely financial and business advice, for example on the benefits of forward buying to secure better input prices and become less reliant on spot purchases.

“Last year visitors requested more livestock, consequently the event will feature more space for dairy cows, more beef with three national shows and for the first time, sheep. We are also pleased to offer what are recognised as the UK’s biggest and best showing facilities.”


The event is scheduling a world first – a robotic feeding and milking demonstration of interest to cattle farmers seeking to save labour and improve their herds’ efficiency. The feature will complement the following line up including the following key features.
