Eblex conference.

HOW livestock producers can obtain better returns while reducing their impact on the environment will be top of the agenda at the English Beef and Lamb Executive's (Eblex) annual conference later this month.

The event - Red Meat - The Challenges and Opportunities - will focus on improving business against a backdrop of changes to the supply chain due to global trade, regulations and demand pressure. International industry experts, including John Mabb, UK market manager for Meat & Wool New Zealand and Professor Marcia Dutra de Barcellos, from the University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, will discuss production methods in their home countries and give their views on the UK market.

Eblex's head of R&D Dr Duncan Pullar will look at environmental issues ahead of the launch of the organisation's own environmental roadmap, AHDB economics and policy manager Mark Topliff will reveal the industry's latest performance benchmark figures.

The one-day event, at Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Warwickshire, is free to Eblex levy payers. Tickets on a first come, first served basis. Reserve places by emailing or tel 08706 086 610.
