Over 250 visitors are expected to visit some of Cornwall’s best livestock farms next July, as the county’s local grassland societies play host to the BGS Summer Meeting.
 
This annual event brings together farmers, people working in the agricultural supply industry and academics to learn, network and enjoy a series of farm visits and evening events.
 
‘Meating and Milking the Cream of Cornish Grassland’ will be held in Cornwall from 12 to 15 July 2015. Cornwall Grassland Society (made up of four local societies) has organised a diverse and interesting itinerary that will take in seven livestock farms and the ‘Future Farm’ research facilities at Duchy College.
As well as tackling timely technical issues on grassland management, profitable farming systems and scientific developments, the occasion also has a valuable social element, including a Gala Dinner and a Cornish traditional male voice choir singing on the opening night. The event will be based at the Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club, near Bodmin.
 
The local organisers are led by well-known businessman Bill Harper, and North Cornwall farmer David Stone, both of Bude Grassland Society. Bill Harper says: “Hosting the meeting requires a lot of work, but what a fantastic way to showcase the best Cornwall has to offer, in a region we know punches well above its weight where grassland farming is concerned. We are looking forward to welcoming the delegates and learning from them.”
 
Booking will open in Spring 2015. For more information, including a preview of the programme, visit the BGS website – www.britishgrassland.com. Or follow the arrangements on Twitter @BritishGrass  #BGS_SM15
