Description

Outlook 2019

Tuesday December 4th 2018

Few in the farming community will hold fond memories for 2018, a year that has been dominated by adverse weather conditions that have had a major impact on both grassland and tillage systems. A long winter and extremely dry summer have caused serious challenges at farm level and elsewhere in the food production chain.

Milk deliveries and the grain harvest have been lower than expected. Input expenditure has escalated dramatically on many farms due to much higher than normal feed requirements. Incomes across all sectors will experience a reduction in 2018.

What lies ahead for 2019?: Turning to 2019, and with Brexit now imminent, there remains no clarity on whether the UK will exit via a transition agreement or whether an abrupt “Hard” Brexit will occur.

What lies ahead for 2019? This year’s event will include the short term outlook for the major farm sectors, and will consider the implications of an orderly or a disorderly Brexit.

There is no fee for this event. However, due to limited capacity, registration is mandatory and closes on November 30th.
