Rix Petroleum to Host Agricultural Open Day in April
Rix Petroleum is set to host its very first Agricultural Open Day, which will take place on Wednesday, 12th April at the Rix Pavilion in Driffield.
The event will provide farmers with the chance to discuss some of the biggest topics affecting agriculture today, such as the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), fuel price trends, and Brexit.
The event will see keynote speakers, including Chairman of the NFU national horticulture and potatoes board Guy Poskitt, and Phillips 66 Wholesale Business Manager Mark Todd, address attendees throughout the day. A Q&A will also be held in which farmers will get to talk about the issues that are concerning them the most.
In addition to this, attendees will be given the chance to talk to the team at Rix, as well as the company’s trusted suppliers, about their fuel, lubricants, tanks, and additives. There will be exhibition stands from the likes of Exocet (FAST), Q8Oils, and Greenchem AdBlue to browse. Plus, everyone will be offered the chance to test-drive the latest Fiat and Jeep 4×4 off-road vehicles.
“Help the region’s farmers keep up to date with all things fuel and farm”
Duncan Lambert, Director of Rix Petroleum, says: “We’ve decided to create the Rix Agricultural Open Day to help the region’s farmers keep up to date with all things fuel and farm, so we’re hoping everyone will take something away from the day.
“As fuel is one of the biggest input costs on the farm today, we have a number of buying options available to help farmers with both price and cash flow, which is what we will be speaking about. We hope the day will be a great success, and intend to make it an annual event.”
The Rix Agricultural Day is free to attend, and will start with a locally-sourced breakfast at 8:30am on Wednesday, 12 April. This will be followed by two keynote speakers, then delegates will be given time to look around the trade stands. After a hog roast lunch, attendees will be addressed by the final keynote speaker of the day, Guy Poskitt.
Anyone wanting to attend should register by emailing [email protected] no later than 26 March. Spaces are limited and are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
The Rix Agricultural Day is being held at: Rix Pavilion, Driffield Showground, Kellythorpe, Driffield, East Yorkshire, YO25 9FB on April 12, 2017
