FREE Farm to Fork – Marketing Prime Sheep Event

November 27, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

This practical event, run by AHDB & MLC Services Ltd, allows 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

Discussion with the trainers and other participants will give you a greater insight into these areas.

On the day you must 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.

Places are limited, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
