Taking place at the Bath & West Showground, Somerset, on Wednesday 6 October, this comprehensive trade event is an essential date in the dairy farming calendar.
This year, the Bath & West have taken the brave decision to look to the future and showcase the next generation of farming by offering Calf & Heifer Classes & Showmanship Classes. Classes will be available for calves as young as nine months up to senior in-calf heifers. The classes for exhibitors range from tiny tots of 7 years of age right up to 20-year-olds, all demonstrating their showmanship skills.
There will be a wide range of classes for Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey, and Any Other Dairy Breed. Within the Any Other Breed section, each class has a prize for the highest placed Ayrshire, British Friesian, Brown Swiss and Dairy Shorthorn. Prize money will also be on offer for the Interbreed Champion Showman, thanks to the continued support of the sponsors.
Alan Lyons, Head of Shows at the Bath & West says “We are absolutely thrilled that the Dairy Show is returning in just a few short weeks and look forward to welcoming everyone back. We are really proud to be celebrating the next generation this year and are excited to see the stars of the future take centre stage in the Cattle Judging Ring”
Headline Sponsor Mole Valley Farmers will be providing expert advice with a compelling programme of seminars, on the future of dairy farming. Dr Matt Witt (Technical Manager, Mole Valley Feed Solutions) and Andy Adler (Molecare Farm Vets) will both contribute towards the panel of expert speakers, with sessions taking place throughout the day in a dedicated seminar area.
