[H]arrison & Hetherington’s premier dairy event, Borderway UK Dairy Expo, which will take place at the Borderway Exhibition Centre, in Carlisle, on 10 March 2018, has seen unprecedented support from the dairy sector. This year it promises to offer dairy farmers a unique opportunity to see world class cattle and all the latest industry innovations and information all under one roof.
Now in its seventh year and sponsored by Holstein UK, Clydesdale Bank, Carrs Billington, Farmers Guardian and Norbrook, Borderway UK Dairy Expo, is a very firm fixture in the dairy industry’s calendar. It has grown to be both a major livestock showcase and a major business event for the industry attracting UK and International exhibitors representing all sectors.
Whether their business is technology, genetics, feeding, breeding or buildings, or if they are a professional organisation, they will be on hand to support and advise farmers, and to help them plan for the future. New exhibitors include, AG Products, Animax, Z Tags, Viking Genetics, Strohfelder, Natural Stockcare Direct, Habro Ltd, Natwest Agriculture, JK Genetics, Heatsafe and Germinal GB Ltd.
Many of those attending will be keen to see best practice highlighted through demonstrations and this year first-time exhibitor Fullwoodhead Dairy Supplies Ltd will do just that. Using their DP AGRI Crush which is designed to maximise cow comfort and give the user complete access to all four hooves, with minimum stress to the animal they will demonstrate safe foot trimming techniques.
Commenting in advance, Event Organiser and Operations Director at Harrison & Hetherington, David Pritchard said: “February is a key time for farmers to be reviewing the year ahead and deciding on their farm management plans and investments. This event offers a wealth of information and access to an array of experts, to enable them to make informed business decisions.
“We have demonstrations on hand this year and practical advice as well as accounting and management advisors – all there to promote best practice for each individual farm.
“We are always hugely encouraged that this event has proven to be so popular with farmers, and all involved in the industry, with over 7000 visitors last year. We have built a reputation that promises practical and professional advice that offers farmers true benefits for their dairy enterprise.”
