New EBLEX Market Outlook Take to the Road

29 January 2009
EBLEX

UK - A new intensive programme of winter meetings has been launched by the English Beef and Lamb Executive Ltd (EBLEX), to help producers make the most of market opportunities in the year ahead.

The Market Outlook Roadshow will consist of eight dedicated workshops taking place across the country throughout February. Each workshop will provide farmers with an overview of current market conditions and explore how issues such as consumer purchasing patterns will impact on the industry moving forward.

This will be followed by sessions on livestock selection and breeding to help producers get the best from their stock, along with an innovative virtual demonstration for attendees to aid beef and lamb selection.

Chris Lloyd, Industry Development Manager for EBLEX comments, “Against a background of increased exports and changing consumption patterns, this new roadshow will help producers meet the current challenges facing the industry and the wider economy, but take full advantage of the numerous opportunities which come from careful strategic planning.”

Each free, practical workshop starts at 7pm and is open to all EBLEX levy payers and is being funded by EBLEX’s Better Returns Programme.
