This year's NBA Beef Expo was held at the NAEC, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire on Thursday 18 May. The day before the NBA has arranged a series of local farm visits and the weather had been appalling, but the day of the event was warm and dry. With 20 Breed Society stands along with companies selling machinery, livestock equipment and supplies and a full seminar programme there was plenty to interest visitors. The Society had a stand at the event and David and Angela Blockley kindly loaned two superb disbudded steers, both of which were 27 months old and weighed 588kg and 650kg respectively. They drew much admiration and attention from event visitors. The Society's thanks go to David and Angela for kindly loaning cattle, plus Council members David McVeigh and Paul Ashcroft who came along to do a 'stint' on the stand.
