UK - Two special free seminars highlighting new opportunities available for livestock farmers to diversify and expand their businesses and boost returns will be held in the South West region on Thursday, 1 July.

Hosted by the leading animal feed company, BOCM PAULS, the events will focus on options for the producers to move into new fields, like the pig industry, as well as contract egg production and "the complete beef business supply system".

Speakers from BQP, the UK's premier integrated pig farming business, Lohmann GB, which is the leading supplier of day-old chicks to the egg laying sector, and Blade Farming, which specialises in supplying quality beef to top UK retailers, will spell out the range of choices currently available in these sectors for farmers who are keen to expand their operations.

A representative from Lloyds TSB Agriculture will also be on hand at both conferences to talk to the delegates about financial matters.

In an effort to ensure as many farmers as possible are able to attend these important events, one seminar will be held at Sedgemoor Auction Centre at Junction 24 on the M5, starting at 11am, while the other will be held at Newbury Rugby Club, Newbury, Berkshire at 6pm.

"They will both include an informal buffet, where delegates will have an opportunity to meet the speakers to discuss their individual circumstances," said BOCM PAULS sales co-ordinator Cara Green.

Ms Green has asked all farmers who want to attend these events to contact her first on 08456 717839 (email Cara Green) for further details.
