UK Dairy Day partnership affords dairy farmers FREE ENTRY to all cattle classes


F


or the first time in its three- year history, dairy farmers across the UK can show their cattle free of charge in all classes at UK Dairy Day 2016 thanks to a partnership between the show and the UK’s largest agricultural purchasing group, Anglia Farmers Limited. 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 Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Dairy Shorthorn and Jersey as well as The National Holstein Show. With many dairy farmers facing challenging times and price cuts, UK Dairy Day and Anglia Farmers want to encourage optimism and a competitive spirit by inviting as many cattle breeders to get involved in what is the UK’s leading cattle show - which will take place in the main ring at UK Dairy Day on Wednesday 14th September 2016. All visitors and exhibitors can also


take advantage of the free entry and free parking. With the support of Anglia Farmers, who are sponsoring the infrastructure of the cattle show this year, anyone who wishes to enter the classes can do so without having to part with any money – and this year’s total prize money reaches an impressive £18,000. Lynden Bustard, cattle show manager and chief steward, commented; “When UK Dairy Day launched three years ago it was our aspiration to host the largest show of dairy cattle in the UK – to have achieved this in such a short period of time is outstanding and something that the whole dairy sector should celebrate. Lynden continued: “This year we have a fine line up of knowledgeable and professional judges who have a passion for their breeds – partnered with free entry, we are confident that we will stage a show that features the most


immaculate cattle in the UK. “We would like to say a huge thank you to Anglia Farmers on behalf of the dairy industry for their support which has enabled free entry for all cattle being showed.”


Clarke Willis, chief executive


of Anglia Farmers Limited, said: “Anglia Farmers and our subsidiary FarmBuyer are committed to supporting dairy farmers across the UK. Our support of the cattle infrastructure at UK Dairy Day gives farmers the chance to enter their finest cattle into the shows free of charge – saving money on entry fees. We hope our gesture greatly benefits dairy farmers to join in the spirit of UK Dairy Day and make it the best show on record.”
