@martian, have theses been confirmed yet, even provisionally?

Asking for a friend.... genuinely!
Unfortunately not. We had a catch-up yesterday and all I can say is: it's going to be a cracking show! There are one or two speakers who we know will only be on one day and when I work out how to extract the info from the computer, I'll post these. Final line-up still a week or two away. Plenty of tickets left, so no tearing hurry as yet. There will be a good mix of livestock/no-till/policy etc on both days, so your best bet, if you can only spare one day, is to toss a coin and trust whatever Lady Luck decides.

As a poor Gambler, I have gone "Each-Way", and got two tickets :)

@martian did you end up with a speaker on composting? I know you said you'd have demo's, but was hoping for someone to explain the science of it.
Sorry, I never replied. There's at least one talk each day on composting and probably a bokashi one too as well as demos of various different techniques.
As to the full line-up of speakers, we are getting closer but it is still under constant fiddling. All I can say is that it is going to be brilliant. Sold a lot of tickets to trusting delegates, so we're duty bound to put on a good show!

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
