More than 4000 visitors and exhibitors attended last month’s Beef Expo 2019 event, held at the J36 Rural Auction Centre, Cumbria.

Over 140 trade stands and breed societies displayed the latest developments and technology within the sector – with a focus on quality and provenance to celebrate the strength and resilience of the British beef industry.

A key highlight of the day was the cattle competitions, bringing in over 120 cattle entries. Overall winner was homebred pedigree Limousin heifer One and Only, from John Williams, Gwynedd. Reserve was Queen of Hearts, a homebred Limousin x heifer, from Jennifer Hyslop, Ayrshire.

The South Devon Performance Championship was held at the show for the third year. Overall champion was AI Rufford Reggie, owned by RW & SM Bostelmann of Staffordshire. Reserve went to two-year-old heifer Z Cilgwrrwg Cas, from Mr R V Hartshorn of Shropshire.

Chris Mallon, chief executive of the National Beef Association, praised the tremendous turnout. He added: “We have had some great feedback, and are particularly pleased to see the focus on productivity and profitability demonstrated by our beef farmers.”

The farm visits, hosted by the Kelly family at Netherhall Farm, and the Dixons at Kit Crag Farm, gave attendees a further insight into two family-owned, progressive beef producers in the region, and added to what was two full days of celebration of the sector.
