The Lincolnshire School of Agriculture is to host a free seminar for farmers at its stand at the Lincolnshire Show on Wednesday (18th June).


The seminar and complimentary buffet of local produce will be staged by Business Link Lincoln and will begin at 6.30pm.


It is designed to attract farmers who are considering reviewing, improving or changing their current farm business.


The agenda includes presentations from professional farming advisers who have helped scores of farmers in the east midlands region.


It will also include a review of the free three-day farm business advice service (FBAS) which is funded by DEFRA and available to farmers with a current CPH number.


Farmers attending the seminar will be able to sign up for FBAS or put questions both to the advisers who undertake the service and to staff from the Business Link Rural Desk who co-ordinate the programme.


The event will be held at the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture stand number 238 and staff from the university will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have about training for the future.


Farmers who wish to benefit from this free event or who would like more information should contact Helen Kiddle on 08700 111202 or email helenk@redwaters.net
