Dunbia welcomes UKHY to Sawley

Nine young members and two council members recently undertook an insightful visit to Dunbia, Sawley.

The day began with members gaining knowledge on the business, market trends and the EUROP grid. They were then lucky enough to go to the lairage and examine four Hereford cross cattle under the supervision of Steve Powdril from AHDB who explained how to visually assess and feel for fat coverage. 

After lunch members went into the boning hall and then the slaughter area. This was a big eye opener for everyone attending and provided a great insight into our beef industry and the processing sector. 

UKHY is grateful to Dunbia for putting on such an excellent day.
