Production efficiency and profitability will take centre-stage at the annual Eblex conference.

The conference will focus on these issues for the production of premium British beef and lamb for all markets. Other topics, including the impact of the Chinese market and banking and financing in the livestock industry, will also be brought under the spotlight.

Guest speaker Duncan Sinclair, agriculture manager for Waitrose, will give insight into retailers’ perspectives of the current beef and lamb market, while Eblex sector director Nick Allen will give an overview of the outlook for beef and lamb. The beef crisis will be brought into debate as Eblex board member James Evans will highlight the challenges facing producers.

Dr Phil Hadley, Eblex southern senior regional manager and conference organiser, said: “Our annual conference is a fixture in the industry calendar. It provides the ideal forum for farmers, processors and other industry stakeholders to meet with the Eblex team to discuss the key issues facing the industry and examine potential future opportunities.”
