RABDF Livestock EventIt's good to see that hosts who serve English wine no longer have to justify their choice to guests - the product stands on its own merits. That was certainly the case with the two white served at the Guild's Livestock Event reception.

Tuck in! Katie Lomas of Farmers Guardian, and foodchain consultant Cedric Porter sample the English cheeses on offer.

The wines - one from Shropshire, the other from Herefordshire - accompanied a good selection of Engish cheeses, which went down well with the Members and Friends of the Guild who enjoyed the get-together.

"It's nice to catch up with colleagues and fellow journalists at the end of the day and have a good chat," says Angela Calvert, senior sales and livestock reporter on Farmers Guardian. "During a busy event like this, there's only time for a quick "Hello" during the day."

Livestock Event press officer Liz Snaith, a Member of the Guild, organised the event in the press centre, which RABDF made available for the reception. Freelance farming and countryside photographer Kevin Milner, whose portfolio includes images from major agricultural and country pursuits events, provided the following pictures.
