Each year the University of Reading’s hosts a student run agricultural conference. It is the largest student run conference in the UK.
This is the 54th year of the conference and the topic shall be: “Should we be optimistic or pessimistic in UK & International agriculture in 2020”.
The aim of the 54th conference is to bring to attention, to what changes many farmers will have to make to stay competitive in the agricultural industry. Current times hold a lot of uncertainty, as well as potential opportunity for farmers and so our discussion should help to highlight the different ways farmers can adapt to challenges or opportunities, in different scenarios. This year we are delighted to have speaking:
Paul Henman, Principal Consultant, Promar International,
Andrew McLay, Agri Food Lead, INNOVATION UK,
Jo Hilditch, Whittern Farms & White Heron Drinks, Hereford and
Sarah Baker, Strategic Insight Manager AHDB
The conference will take place on Monday 27th January 2020 within the Agricultural building at the University of Reading. If using satellite navigation, please enter RG6 7BE. The doors will open at 6:45 pm for a prompt 7:00pm conference start, and will last roughly 2 hours. Attendance and parking is FREE, and donations at the conference will be going to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI). To confirm your attendance please email Teresa M. Hicks (t.m.hicks@reading.ac.uk) or send the attached reply strip back to the address provided. We look forward to hearing from you and sincerely hope you can attend our event.
