Cogent & NWF Agriculture to sponsor UK Dairy Day 2015

The success of UK Dairy Day sees Cogent and NWF Agriculture continue their support for 2015 by repeating their platinum sponsorship for the event taking place on Wednesday 16 September at Telford.

The annual event attracted in 2014 more than 6200 visitors, 92% of whom said they were 'very happy' in exit polls; and over 200 trade stands many of which have already re-booked for 2015.

Sponsorship packages have been designed suit all budgets, aimed at meeting the event objective of 'sharing knowledge' through partnership with key sectors of the dairy industry covering nutrition, breeding, animal health, data, technology, learning, machinery and finance.

“We are delighted to welcome Cogent and NWF Agriculture as platinum sponsors for the second year, a great testament to the success of the 2014 event. The sponsorship package has been enhanced to deliver greater brand awareness for our sponsors and features a number of exciting opportunities in conjunction with Holstein UK and CIS” comments Carl Smith, UK Dairy Day show director.

“Last year's event drew dairy farmers seeking information, advice and support ahead the autumn and winter period. Our 2015 event will be enhanced further with additional exhibition space and improved layout connecting all ground floor exhibition areas to a new external area,” further adds Carl.

The event will feature new first floor area dedicated to 'Sharing Knowledge'. Featuring display areas for agricultural colleges, farming related charities and local businesses this new area will provide learning and development focussed on the cow, farm and team.

Mike Phillips, Cogent's UK Sales Manager, said: “We are delighted to be one of the main sponsors of UK Dairy Day for the second consecutive year. The timing of the show is perfect when plans are being made for the winter and last year's event went from strength to strength. 2015 promises to be a tremendous day and a great showcase for agriculture.

Trade stand applications were release on 1 December to 2014 exhibitors until 31 January before any remaining trade stand space goes on general sale on 1 February 2015.
