On Wednesday 12th April, Rix Petroleum held their first Agricultural Open Day at Driffield Showground. This new event in the Rix calendar was a great way of bringing together the farming communities from around Yorkshire for an educational day with some exclusive show offers, including Fuel Storage Tanks and Lubricants from the Rix Agricultural team.
Over a breakfast of locally sourced bacon and sausage sandwiches, the attendees were able to catch up with friends, colleagues and members of the Rix team whilst walking around the exhibition area featuring some of the services Rix provide and those of our trusted suppliers, Q8Oils, AdBlue and Exocet additives.
Guests were then invited into main Rix Pavilion theatre area to hear educational talks from industry experts: Duncan Lambert, Director of Rix Petroleum, Mark Todd, UK Wholesale Business Manager from global Energy Company Phillips 66, Farmer of the year and NFU board member Guy Poskett, Q8Oils and Exocet.
It was the first time that Rix Petroleum has hosted an agricultural open day, but we are looking to make it an annual date in the farming calendar.
Duncan Lambert said: “We have a close relationship with the farming community and we have often been asked if we can put on an event that will bring them together.
“The Agricultural Open Day aimed at doing just that. We had some interesting and thought-provoking talks, so hopefully, everyone went away feeling a little bit more informed.”
We would like to say a big Thank You to all those who attended and took part in the day’s activities, we had a great turnout and we loved hearing all the positive feedback from our customers.
Very worthwhile good promotions, and some excellent advice and information. Also, interesting speakers learnt a lot. Worth travelling from Doncaster, even at a busy time of year, hope you repeat next year.

There was something there for everyone even if it was just the aroma of the freshly cooked pig wafting across the hall that was for lunch. Overall, an excellent day, well thought through, well executed and job well done guys and girls.
