In just a few weeks time, i’ll be jetting off to Argentina to undertake a two week tour of beef production systems. The once in a lifetime trip is all thanks to the Guild of Agricultural Journalists and Perkins Innovation Scholarship which I was lucky enough to be awarded in 2017.
The action packed trip will take in the sights and sounds of Argentinian agriculture including Linears cattle market in Buenos Aires, beef lots and cattle on the pampas. I’ll be looking at how Argentina are developing their beef export market and asking what potential impact this could have on UK farmers.
I’ll be documenting my trip here, so stay tuned for more updates! Gracias
