    Well that came round quick!! One month until cereals! Who's going, who's not? I know a few exhibitors pulled out last year, any no shows this year? Looking on their website the Drone seems to be getting featured more....anyone going to look at Drones? I guess there are more specialist events.

    Looking forward to stopping off at the TFF tent this year, the food and drink was out of this world! I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of Michelin stars this year :whistle:

    Cant see Frontier, Gleadell, Glencore, Agrii etc on the exhibitor list. Not even Openfield, who seem quite skilled in pissing money down the toilet. I've been hankering for a ticket, but not so sure now.

    I would strongly recommend a visit to my friend's stand which is Livelab #286 as an excellent place to sort all your sampling and testing needs for slurry / grain / feed / all sorts. Also often have very good sausages. Sometimes they bring some science.

    Not going. I'm on holiday that week & my best man is getting married on the Friday in Cornwall. I'm going to Groundswell instead.

    Used to be 50 of us go on an organised trip. Nobody is interested this year so that’s the end of that.

    the farcical form filling to get entry last year even with tickets after a very early start and a long drive ,this year even longer, puts me off getting too enthusiastic . Plus if I was that near stansted would take a leaf out of brisels book and catch a plane to go on hols . I really cant see the point in going to look at machinery etc which wouldnt even be able to turn round in my yard even if I put them on my wish list to buy 2nd hand in 10 yrs time . Think we may just go to a local trials day and the odd working demo in our area, I can buy a fair few burgers and beers just with the fuel to get there money

    Nope - rather spend the money on some scratchcards - hopefully it goes to some good causes and not to the cereals robbing gits.

    We are not having a stand as such, just a boxing ring where any disagreements on TFF can be setteled ! ;-)

    I'm going..... I think, while its not too far away. If I had to travel for more than a hour I'd wouldn't be this year. Not much I want or need but I sometimes learn something there.

    I'm looking for options for my free flow conversion

    I think its still worth going for a small business on a small plot as you (used!) to get a big audience. Two businesses I’m involved with are still going as its local to us a staffing cost can be kept down. Will review visitor numbers before looking any further forward.
