With more trade stands, a 12% increase in visitor numbers and larger numbers of dairy businesses and cattle exhibitors - the show was bigger than before, with an overwhelmingly positive atmosphere among dairy farmers and suppliers despite the current dairy challenges.


Dairy farmers, agricultural students, and industry experts networked, shared knowledge and did business at an extremely successful UK Dairy Day 2015.


As last year the show ring features some of the very best of the UK’s cows from all breeds, with Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Dairy Shorthorn, Jersey


he second UK Dairy Day at The International


and Holstein breeds all coming under the judges’ scrutiny. Visitors also watched a visual depiction of the cows’ anatomy using paint by Scarsdale Vets and joined Tim Carter and David Rowe for live foot trimming and knife sharpening demonstrations in the External Demonstration Area. In addition live seminars took place in the Learning and Development Zone throughout the day and the winner of the New Product Zone was announced.


Carl Smith, UK Dairy Day Show Director, commented; “UK Dairy Day would like to congratulate all exhibitors, visitors, breed competitors and sponsors for coming together in support of the dairy industry and helping to create such a thriving one-day event. “We are indebted to our four principal sponsors, Barclays, Cogent Breeding, NWF Agriculture and Eprinex who


have provided a substantial amount of support and investment to make the show possible. UK Dairy Day really is the most important and dedicated event for the dairy industry; it is where new concepts, products, ideas and innovations are shared and where dairy farmers meet with suppliers and milk buyers. “Thank you to all our exhibitors, contractors, suppliers and dairy farmers – we look forward to welcoming you all back to UK Dairy Day 2016.”


UK Dairy Day 2016 takes place on Wednesday 14 September at The International Centre, Telford
