Format of the day, flyer and contacts

LEAF Technical Day 2016 will take a similar format to our first technical day held in 2014. A few exhibits will be laid out around the central steading and grain stores but most will be at various locations around the farm. Guided tours will begin at 1000 am and take place in the morning and afternoon. Lunch will start at 12.45 and offer at least an hour for informal contact and networking. The day should end around 4.30 pm.

Summaries of the exhibits will be made available here.
