HARRISON & Hetherington has announced that this year’s Borderway Agri Expo will be livestreamed with noted livestock commentators Libby Clarke, Andy Frazier and Scott Brown.
Borderway Agri Expo, which takes place on Friday, October 28, will this year have a trio of guest commentators, with the commercial cattle and sheep classes being livestreamed to allow supporters from all over the world to tune in to follow.
As one of the UK’s largest events of its kind, Libby Clarke and Andy Frazier have been invited to commentate and present the commercial cattle classes to those watching from across the UK and beyond. The sheep section will have its own dedicated commentator also, the noted broadcaster and farmer Scott Brown.
Organisers Harrison & Hetherington first trialled livestreaming at UK Dairy Expo back in March 2022 and were delighted by the response.
More than 7,000 people tuned in from as far afield as the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Libby, from Springfield Farm, Lurgan, is a fourth-generation farmer who runs a commercial beef enterprise, as well as pedigree Shorthorns and Charolais. She also owns Joyce Clarke Estate Agents, which specialises in property and farm sales.
Libby took over the role of Balmoral Show’s chief commentator from her late father, Tom, when the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society moved to its new showground in Balmoral Park.
She said: “I am delighted to be involved with Agri Expo, which is widely regarded as a flagship event, promoting all that is good within the agricultural sector. I consider it an honour to be asked to participate and am very much looking forward to looking round the stock and catching up with people.”
