EU membership and the livestock sector’s competitiveness will come under the spotlight at the 2016 Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) Outlook Conference.

Hosted by the three livestock sectors of the AHDB, representing beef and lamb, pork and dairy, with AHDB Market Intelligence (MI), the conference will take place at One Great George Street, Westminster, London, on Tuesday, 9 February 2016.

The opening address is due to be given by AHDB chairman Peter Kendall, followed by keynote presentations on the referendum on UK membership of the EU and the relative competitiveness of UK and global livestock sectors.

Delegates will also have the chance to discuss market opportunities and issues during a question and answer session with industry experts. Separate breakout sessions will follow, providing an overview of the market outlook specific to each sector.

The AHDB Outlook Conference is an established event in the industry calendar, providing the ideal forum for supply chain planners and experts to hear about market prospects for the coming year and to discuss key issues.
