Farmers support cancellation of Agrofest

Some livestock farmers are supporting the Barbados Agricultural Society’s (BAS) decision to suspend the biggest agricultural calendar event – Agrofest.

On Monday, chief executive officer of the BAS, James Paul, announced that the annual exhibit, which usually takes place on the last weekend of February  was cancelled due to the recent spike of COVID-19 cases.

Yesterday, well known rabbit farmer Frederick “Freddie” Butcher said he agreed the exhibition should be cancelled.
