Grassland & Muck 2020 – Event cancelled

On Monday 16th March the RASE trustees made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Grassland & Muck event, following Government advice indicating that gatherings should not take place.

Whilst we are sorry to have to make this announcement to cancel, we believe it is the right decision, to protect the health of the industry and indeed the wider population, in these unprecedented circumstances.

We thank all our exhibitors and visitors for their support.

Future plans for the events will be announced here on our website in due course.
