Beef Expo 2018

The 2018 NBA Beef Expo will be held at Halls Shrewsbury Livestock Auction Centre. 


The annual highlight of the beef industry calendar is due to take place on Friday 25th May, with organisers looking to build upon the huge success of last year’s event at Stoneleigh. Bringing together the very best in British commercial and pedigree cattle, equipment, ground-breaking developments, and show classes for everyone involved in the industry, NBA Beef Expo is a celebration and exploration of everything British Beef has to offer.



The NBA Beef Expo is considered a major showcase for pedigree and commercial breed societies who want to promote the quality of their cattle. Thanks to this, the NBA Beef Expo displays some of the finest examples of British breeding anywhere in the UK.  Farmers, exhibitors, agricultural companies and interested members of the public also use the annual event to network, do business and share knowledge, as well as seeing the crème de la crème of British beef cattle.


Over the years the NBA Beef Expo has become a highlight in the beef farming calendar. Representing all the industry has to offer in terms of new developments, breeding expertise and celebrating the work of all beef farmers across the UK regardless of breed or method. The event attracts experts and industry leaders looking to educate both the farming community and the public, encouraging respect and innovation from all corners of the market.
