A specialist farming event is coming to Aberdeenshire in 2025.

The Royal Northern Agricultural Society (RNAS) will host BeefTech 2025 with the kind permission of the Gall family at Home Farm, Kininmonth on Wednesday, May 28, 2025.

The event continues a long tradition of specialist events hosted by the RNAS over the years and will see a broad range of activities to promote agriculture and the beef industry within and outside the farming sector.

With details of the one-day programme still, to be firmed up, activities will centre on education and knowledge sharing through the likes of demonstrations, seminars, exhibitions, and more with a focus on eating quality.

The Galls focus mainly on finishing cattle and a suckler herd of predominantly Saler cows puts to an Angus or Limousin bull. Lambs supplied from Shetland are finished over the winter. Their arable enterprise focuses on feeding barley for themselves with the addition of OSR, wheat, and milling oats for sale and some local contracting work.

Commenting on plans for the event, RNAS president Alan Cumming said: “We are delighted to announce our latest on-farm industry event, and we are sure that the industry will get on board with what is shaping up to be an excellent showcase for our sector.

“The Gall family has provided us with the ideal location at Kininmonth and we are very grateful to them for their support. We now hope that sponsors, exhibitors, and visitors will join our efforts to deliver an important opportunity for learning, discussion, and promotion.”

Noel Gall added: “We are really interested in shining a light on new and innovative solutions for the beef industry and exploring how to optimize the farm to fork journey, something particularly important for us.”
