Even before the onset of the Covid Crisis, The Andersons Centre has provided regular updates on key industry developments via webinars. This trend has accelerated recently and with trade and agricultural policy set to change significantly, it is crucial that you and your colleagues are aware of the key trends shaping the agricultural industry, and their implications.
Our webinars focus on a wide variety of topics including;
- Key developments in agricultural policy and their on-farm implications.
- Latest developments on Brexit and other trade negotiations.
- Overview of the latest trends shaping the economics of arable and livestock agriculture.
- Various other industry and training events concerning UK agriculture.
Spring Webinars – Profits, Trade and Policy Update
As a replacement for our usual Spring Seminars, we are running two Webinars on Thursday 11th February focusing on the key issues for UK agriculture, with an additional series of Seminars to follow in May . Each webinar event lasts for around an hour;
- Part 1: Farm Profitability and Trade Issues (12pm to 1pm) – This session will provide an update on the financial performance of UK farming and its future prospects. The session will also look at developments in trade policy (including Brexit) and its effects on farming.

It will look at the implications of this for farm businesses and those that trade with them. To book a place for this event, click here – https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/5016340793727165712
There is a charge of £60 + VAT (£72) for each event and they need to be booked separately. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the Webinar. Delegates will receive a full copy of the presentation and notes. The webinars can be viewed on PC, laptops, tablets, and will be recorded for viewing at a later stage if you are unable to make it on the day.
With UK agriculture facing its most significant change in decades, these events provide delegates with a deeper understanding of the key issues facing the sector which will shape performance during the 2020s, including opportunities and threats for their businesses. They are relevant to all professionals, companies and organisations working in agriculture.
We will also be rescheduling our usual round of Spring Seminars for May. Dates are still to be confirmed, but we aim to go to all the usual venues. We will provide more detail in due course. Those that book up for a Webinar will be offered a discount on the Seminars. For more information, please visit our Seminars’ page.
