Farm to Fork – Marketing Prime Sheep Event – Calow

November 15, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

These practical events, run by AHDB allow you to handle live animals and make your assessment of fat cover and conformation using the EUROP grid. You will then see the same animals on the hook in the chillers and the actual classification so you can compare the assessments made whilst the animals were alive.

There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss various market requirements, factors affecting killing out percentages and dressing specifications.

Other topics include:

  • Current consumer demands
  • Characteristics of breeds
  • Abattoir/Livestock Market requirements
  • Hygiene requirements – farm and abattoir
  • Opportunity to discuss beef and pork process/ carcases

On the day you will need to bring CLEAN wellingtons and something warm for the chillers.  You MUST also bring some form of ID, ie. Driving Licence or Passport.

 Lunch and Refreshments are included.

Please note that all Attendees to these events must be 18 years and over. Numbers are Limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
