Event preview: Everything you need to know about The Dairy Show 2019

The one-day Dairy Show, held at the Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, combines a comprehensive trade show with an exhibition of top quality dairy cattle.

 

The show attracts more than 300 trade stands and more than 300 cattle, representing the six main breeds, compete in the livestock classes, which also includes classes for calves and junior showmanship to encourage the exhibitors of the future.

 

The classes culminate in the judging of the inter-breed, where a panel made up of all the five breed judges mark the entrants out of 10, with all competitors hoping for the elusive 50 out of 50.

 

Network

 

The event is an opportunity to network and also hear the latest ideas through a range of seminars and guest speakers.

 

The Dairy Show will be hosting the dairy industry dinner on Tuesday, October 1, at which the dairy industry award will be presented.
