Dairy Pro is the UK dairy industry's register for professional development. It gathers all training, including courses, conference, on-line learning and publications into one place – making it easy for farmers, farm workers and students to not only find the right activity; but to record participation as well. This helps improve career prospects, attract and retain better staff, and enhance business performance.
UK Dairy Day is an accredited event with Dairy Pro.
The 2018 event has been upgraded and is registered for three CPD points:
- Livestock Production Systems (LP)
- Business Management (BM)
- Personal Development (PD)
The seminars and practical demonstrations will also give Dairy Pro members the opportunity to gain further points, a maximum of 12.
New Dairy Pro App Launched

Then logging in with their membership details they can access a detailed view of their training profile under the points tab, including learning pillars and individual event points. Login details will be remembered after you have initially accessed your profile, meaning that you do not have to remember your membership details

People learn and take on information in different ways – Dairy Pro recognised this and looked to all the routes where people gain their information so journals, discussion groups, short training course, on-line academies, study tours etc. They then looked at the numerous aspects of the business that is dairy farming and the skills needed then assigned these under ‘learning pillars’ which to you and me means grouping of topics such as business, health and welfare, nutrition, environment etc.
These pillars are noted in the reference given to each event at pointing – the time the event/training lasts and the delivery type are all taken into account when determining the number of points each activity attracts.

- Personal Development
