Around 60 members, friends and guests came along to the Society's AGM weekend herd visit to Mike Winterton's Wanlip herd. We saw two batches of cows with calves at foot and then the bulling heifers before returning to the farm to have lunch of Longhorn beef and burgers.

The format for this year's AGM weekend is slightly different this year, with a visit on Saturday, but free time for members to arrange a visit to a local attraction of interest on Sunday.
Whilst nothing formal has been organised for Sunday 17 October, the Society is recommending Belvoir Castle as an informal visit. Members should book their own tickets and then meet up with friends and members to continue catching up as I'm sure there won't be enough time on Saturday to speak to everyone!
The AGM will be held 'in person' at Melton Mowbray Market. We have reserved the Banqueting Suite which can potentially seat 400 people so there will be plenty of room for social distancing. If you are interested in viewing over Zoom please let the office know.
Our after-dinner speaker on Saturday evening will be Alastair Sneddon, Senior Partner at Bagshaws Auctioneers.
COVID-19 regulations in force at the time will of course dictate what we are able to do, so plans may change at short notice.Click here to go the AGM papers, updated on 14 October with the audited accounts
