Agri-Expo 2017

On Friday 3 November our resident calf Finlay and members of the David Allen team visited the 2017 Agri-Expo.

A celebration of the very best in British Livestock, and the farmers, breeders and stockmen who look after them.  Borderway Agri-Expo is one of the largest events in the UK Agri industry calendar.

The event is now in its 11th year and proudly held at Harrison and Hetherington (H&H), Carlisle, thousands attended from across the country to see the variety of stock and trade stands on display.

Our team in attendance was made up of representatives from across the David Allen group of businesses.  Our homemade cakes made a return for a second year and were very much welcomed by visitors to our stand along with a cuppa to keep everyone warm.  Thank you to everyone who popped along to see us, it was great catching up with old faces and meeting new ones too.

Agricultural Partner, Michael Peile, commented “H&H Group have once again put on an amazing event, which we are proud to support.  This year it was hosted outside of the usual half-term slot but was still well attended and as always a great opportunity to catch up with our clients and contacts in the agricultural industry, thank you to everyone who came along to see us on our stand and helped to make it such a great day.”

We were proud to once again sponsor the Young Farmers Stock Judging competition and our Agricultural Partner Michael Peile and Accounts Assistant Karen Blaylock were proud to present the rosettes to the winners.

Here they are with Ellen Elliot, who was placed second in the senior category.

We look forward to attending next year’s event, it is always a highlight of our events calendar.
