Cattle conference to focus on healthy diet
Published:  06 January, 2014

The British Cattle Conference will focus on ‘breeding healthy food in a hungry world’ across its two-and-a-half day event in January.

The conference will see the first day-and-a-half dedicated to beef, and industry leaders will highlight the changing demands for meat.

Speakers will also provide an insight into the British cattle breeding industry and how it is preparing to deliver a healthy diet to a growing global population.

Neil Darwent, chairman of The British Cattle Breeders Club (BCBC), said: "Our 2014 conference theme reflects the challenges faced by cattle breeders of today and we have a wide range of speakers, including internationally-renowned geneticists, breeding specialists and nutritionists. We also have a number of forward-thinking dairy and beef producers, who will outline how their businesses are run and present their views on how they see the future.

"There will be plenty of time for delegates to network at the conference and catch up with other industry representatives. While there is no requirement to join the BCBC to attend, members are eligible for a discounted attendance fee. We hope you will join us."

The conference will be held in Telford, Shropshire on 20-22 January.
