New venue plus an exciting line up

This year’s National Youngstock Conference is moving to a new venue and will continue to offer a wealth of technical information for all delegates, regardless of rearing system, level of experience or expertise.

This year’s National Youngstock Conference will be held on July 18 at Exeter’s Sandy Park Conference Centre, following feedback from producers eager to attend the event but unable to make the long journey north from the south west.

The second National Youngstock Conference (NYC), held in July 2023 in Shropshire, was a great success, attracting 355 producer, vet and trade delegates. They travelled from across the UK to listen to leading dairy and beef professionals share a wealth of knowledge and expertise on calf and heifer rearing.


Demand for tickets was such that there was a waiting list, just as there was in 2022. The packed one-day programme, which filled two lecture halls, delivered 16 technical presentations to a sell-out audience.


The event also included 34 trade stands, which offered delegates the opportunity to network, catch up with conference speakers, and find out more about the latest products and services on offer.


Sandy Park Conference Centre is just five minutes by car from Exeter airport, has excellent road and rail links, and there are plenty of hotels and pubs close by for accommodation.


The venue’s facilities are also ideal, with both presentation and trade stand spaces all under one roof. The presentation rooms are on the same floor and adjacent to each other, which will help delegates to easily find their way around the conference.


The NYC will be chaired, again, by the event’s clinical director Tim Potter, and will also involve other leading industry professionals. Providing a forum for producers, vets, researchers and other dairy and beef professionals, the NYC aims to promote best practice and facilitate the exchange of ideas relevant to all stages of youngstock rearing.


The event’s ‘actionable insights’ competition will be repeated this year. Delegates are encouraged to make notes about the key things they’ve learned during the day and plan to put into action when back on farm.


More than 50 delegates entered the competition during the 2023 conference, for the chance to win one of several prizes, including a half day of on-farm consultancy. The winner and their calf-rearing system will be featured in CowManagement later in 2024.

Tickets cost £49.50 (ex VAT) and include the full programme of lectures, a booklet containing a summary of the presentations, access to the exhibition trade area, refreshments and a light lunch.
