Carl Smith, UK Dairy Day Show Director, comments; “UK Dairy Day is a one-day event dedicated to the dairy industry, taking place at a time of year when plans and decisions are being made for the winter period. Following the success of last year’s event, we have worked hard to improve and enhance the running of the show to present a first class experience. We are very confident that with the new trade stand layout, over 300 dairy buisnesses, the new learning and development zone, line up of topical seminars, and new innovative products zone, this year’s show is set to be a triumph. The theme for 2015 is ‘sharing knowledge for a profitable dairy industry’ and aims to engage, inspire and educate. The Cattle Show is one of the focal points of the event and this year is enhanced by the new Red Ribbon Sale at the end of the day. The event will represent a fantastic array of cattle breeds – and of course some great competitive spirit amongst breeders! Less than one week today and excitement is really building. Make sure you buy your tickets online now and enjoy fast track entry on the day! Finally, a massive thank you to all of our sponsors, exhibitors, suppliers and dairy farmers; we now look forward to welcoming many visitors on the day.”
