The annual BETA Feed Conference, sponsored by Premier Nutrition for the first time, takes place at Solihull Village Hotel on Thursday April 27, when delegates from the feed industry will gather to find out the latest news, updates and information from the sector.

Presentations will include:
● Karen Pratt and Keith Millar, of the Food Standards Agency, looking at legislative changes and the impact of Brexit on feed regulations
● Professor Andy Durham, of Liphook Equine Hospital, providing an update on endocrinopathic laminitis and the work of the Equine Endocrinology Group
● Solicitor James Pheasant, of Burges Salmon, highlighting terms and conditions, and anti-doping risks.

There will also be speakers focusing on the challenges of export and giving guidance on claims and labelling.

“The conference is a fabulous, once-a-year opportunity for members of the feed industry to keep abreast of all developments and meet friends and colleagues in relaxed surroundings, away from the office,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “It has continued to grow in both numbers and stature over the years, and is always extremely well attended.”

Open to all those working in the feed and supplements industry, the one-day conference welcomes manufacturers, distributors, retailers, nutritionists and university lecturers. BETA members can attend for a cost of £92 plus VAT and non-members for £140 plus VAT.
