More than 300 exhibitors are gearing up for next month’s UK Dairy Day event, due to be held on Wednesday, 13 September, at the International Centre, Telford, Shropshire.

Trade stand space has already sold out for the free-to-attend show for the dairy supply chain. The 2017 event will feature a number of new zones – including the NBDC Dairy Breed Village, Making More from Milk zone and the Calf Rearing zone.

The event brings together all facets of the dairy industry – farmers, students, breeders, geneticists, vets, feed merchants, dairy equipment suppliers and milk buyers – plus professional service providers, charities, and colleges.

Showcase

UK Dairy Day event director Sue Cope said: “The dairy industry is one of the most forward-thinking sectors – constantly changing, innovating, and trialling new techniques. We’re excited to bring new zones and features to the event this year.”

The NBDC Breed Village will be a dedicated area where breed societies can promote their clubs and membership. Sponsored by the National Bovine Data Centre, it will showcase breed societies, dairy performance statistics and the NBDC type classification service.

Visitors can learn about farm diversification in the Making More from Milk zone. Visitors will be able to see how to add value to dairy enterprises and milk production using vending machines, making ice cream or yoghurts, or creating a new supply chain.

About half of all UK farms use some form of diversified activity to boost their incomes by an average of £10,400. This zone aims to share farmers’ stories about diversification to inspire others looking to add value.

Raising calves is the second largest annual expense of a dairy business’ production costs after feed. Sponsored by Volac, the Calf Rearing zone will give visitors tips on birthing, growth, health, hygiene, calf feeding and husbandry.
