Showing competitors at this year’s UK Dairy Day have the chance to take home significant monetary prizes as this year’s total fund reaches an impressive £20,000!
Prize Fund Hits New Record High
Taking place on Wednesday 13th September, and for the first time hosting The National Ayrshire Show alongside its established National Holstein Show, UK Dairy Day 2017 is set to be the hub for dairy breeders, displaying the very best of UK dairy breeds. With a prize fund totalling £20,000, competitors are being encouraged to put forward their entries and be a part of the UK’s leading cattle showing event.
The prize fund is generated by retained sponsors from the 2016 event, as well as support this year from new sponsors. Businesses from across the dairy supply chain have invested significantly into UK Dairy Day which is now in its 4th year – demonstrating their commitment to the sustainability and success of the dairy industry.
As the prize fund reaches its record yet, the good news doesn’t stop there! With Anglia Farmers on board as cattle infrastructure sponsor, it enables Holstein UK, the organisers of the show, to be able to offer free entry for all cattle.
Become a Resident of the NBDC Breed Village
New to the show this year is the NBDC Breed Village in the foyer of Hall 2. This area will be a dedicated space for breed societies to promote their organisation, activity, and membership benefits to prospective breeders. Headline sponsor for this area is the National Bovine Data Centre (NBDC) who will have members of their team offering breeding advice and showcasing the benefits of linear scoring and type classification.
In addition to over 300 trade stands, the Cattle Show at UK Dairy Day is one of the main attractions with a display of some of the finest breeds – including classes for Brown Swiss, Dairy Shorthorn, Jersey, Guernsey plus The National Holstein Show and The National Ayrshire Show.
Lynden Bustard, Cattle Show Manager and Chief Steward, commented; “Excitement is already building for UK Dairy Day this September. Introducing the new NBDC breed village and welcoming The National Ayrshire Show are two real highlights – and with a prize fund of £20,000, we are just so appreciative of the generous support from dairy businesses. Our aim is to be right at the heart of UK dairy breeders both commercial and pedigree and be amongst the very best cattle. Now hosting two National Shows, UK Dairy Day really is the show to be seen at, compete at and do business at!”
