“The day will offer something for all farm types and systems with the opportunity to talk to our suppliers and quiz them on their products and services. We’re also excited by our seminar programme that will feature industry and technical experts.

“There will be lots of special and exclusive show deals as well, so it provides a really good opportunity to plan for the season ahead, secure some great prices and get expert advice to help with the core aims of improving productivity, profitability and sustainability.”

Tickets to the event are free, and guests will receieve bacon rolls on arrival and a hot lunch. The Farmer Expo takes place at the Matford Livestock Centre, which is home of the Exeter Livestock Market, in Marsh Barton (EX2 8FD).
