Livestock

Livestock plays a key role in UK agriculture, helping to provide high quality food such as meat, milk and eggs, and contributing £14.7bn in output to the UK economy in 2020.

Livestock is a wide ranging industry encompassing everything from extensive hill farming of sheep, to lowland dairy and beef production, and pig and poultry production. Within the UK, we have large, well established companies and emerging SMEs who are actively involved in innovation. The UK is also home to a strong research base in animal and veterinary science and related areas, including world leaders. Livestock farming represents a major land use in the UK and is a key part to tackling climate change and ensuring that we’re able to feed the rapidly growing global population.

We’ll share our deep knowledge of the livestock industry and will help you make powerful connections with key stakeholders in the sector.
