RNAS holds a specialist event every two or three years. Each specialist event has a different focus, from livestock, arable and grassland management to family days out.
At the more farming focused events, demonstrations and seminars on topical issues are provided. It is a good opportunity for farmers to meet with trade exhibitors and to learn of new technologies.
Our 'family day out' events aim to promote all aspects of farming and the countryside to a wider public.
