Farmers Guardian is offering readers the chance to win one of 10 pairs of free tickets for The Dairy Show 2016.
The Dairy Show 2016 takes place on October 5 at the Royal Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet.
This one-day event has become one of the most important dates in the dairy farmer’s calendar, combining a comprehensive trade show with an exhibition of top quality dairy cattle. The show attracts more than 300 tradestands from across the country and beyond and with more cattle on show, organisers say this event is the place to be seen and visit.
They say the show provides a complete ’one-stop shop’ event at which to meet milk buyers, feed suppliers, AI companies and consultants, plus showcases an extensive display of agricultural machinery and equipment. Many also hail the event as an excellent and profitable networking opportunity. Throughout the day the theatre hosts an array of topical seminars.
The Dairy Show is registered with Dairy Pro. Current members and those who join at the event will get their attendance registered on their personal development record and receive three Dairy Pro points.
Dairy cattle are at the heart of the show, with entries covering the six main breeds, plus classes for calves and junior showmanship classes to encourage the exhibitors of the future. The classes climax at the end of the day with each breed champion judged by a panel of five experts who mark the entrants out of 10, with all competitors hoping for the elusive 50 out of 50.
