The 75th British Cattle Breeders Club Conference

The 75th British Cattle Breeders Club Conference


Time to Challenge Traditions at the next British Cattle Breeding Conference, January 2023

“Today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and face the challenge of change” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

British farmers are constantly being advised to scrutinise what they do and adapt according to market demands, but is this happening when it comes to cattle breeding? Those who know me will know that it’s usually me who asks the difficult questions, so I was keen to use my year as BCBC chair to encourage us all to think differently. My chosen theme of ‘Challenging Traditions’ was inspired by my desire to use learning and experience of the past to our advantage and harness the innovations and technologies that are available today to push our industry forward. The 75th British Cattle Breeding conference will bring together experience and science from across the industry in the UK and beyond to create discussion, debate, vision and, as always, to guide the  way in putting science into practice on British cattle farms.
In our 75th year, we have endeavoured to create a programme that highlights the importance of breeding and genetics in creating a sustainable British cattle industry across all sectors commercial and pedigree alike.
I have the privilege of working with and being challenged by a huge number of innovative cattle farmers who have been my inspiration for this conference. I look forward to meeting many more at the event in January…bring your thinking caps.
