Officials from the Crown Estate Scotland are to host an afternoon event to help boost beef and lamb production in Dumfries and Galloway.
The event is being run in conjunction with the Moredun Research Institute to highlight some of the steps needed for greater attention to detail in the sector.
Called Grass, Minerals and Flukes, it will take place at Poldean Farm on the Applegirth Estate, near Lockerbie, and will run between 2pm and 5pm on October 23.
A number of presentations will be staged by experts. The event is free and open to all involved in the livestock sector on a first-come, first-served basis.
