The Dairy Show
Wednesday 2nd October 2013
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 over 300 tradestands from across the country and beyond and with over 250 cattle this show is the place to be seen and visit.
The show as ever continues to provide the dairy farmer or farm manager with a complete "one stop shop" event at which to meet the milk buyers, feed suppliers, aI companies and consultants, plus it showcases an extensive display of agricultural machinery and equipment. Many of the farmers and businesses also hail the event as an excellent and profitable networking opportunity. Throughout the day the theatre also hosts an array of topical seminars.
Dairy cattle are at the heart of the show with 300 entries covering the six main breeds, plus classes for calves and Junior Showmanship classes to encourage the exhibitors of the future. The classes reach an exciting climax at the end of the day with each breed champion judged by a panel of five experts who mark the entrants out of ten, with all competitors hoping for the elusive 50 out of 50.
Micron Bio-Systems is pleased to announce it is the main sponsor for the country's only national dairy specialist event, the Dairy Show, which takes place on Wednesday October 2nd at the Bath and West Showground.
Speaking about the initiative, Micron's Mark Cox said: "The Dairy Show is a key fixture for many dairy farmers throughout the south west and further afield. It is widely recognised as a one-stop-shop for all things dairy, from world-class cattle showing to over 300 trade stands.
"Micron Bio-Systems is delighted to be involved in this exciting year of change, supporting the team's endeavours to increase the number of trade stands, educational seminars and showing classes."
