Next month sees the return of one of the UK’s largest dairy events, Dairy-Tech, taking place on 7 April at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
This year, more than ever, Dairy-Tech is centred around equipping dairy producers with the knowledge they need to help their businesses remain profitable and adapt. More than 300 exhibitors will be at the event, with over 80 new product launches- the most ever yet!
At the event, the Dairy Hub will be covering all things topical, including the latest information on emissions, permitting and the Clean Air Strategy, ELMS, market outlooks, and advice on staffing and overcoming labour shortages, to name a few.
Sessions will take the form of panel debates, interviews and interactive talks with all speakers providing take-home information to help farmers increase profits and performance.
In the Innovation Hub, the latest technology, new concepts and apps will be showcased, designed to help businesses adapt to the upcoming challenges.
The popular live foot trimming demonstrations also make a return, with some of the industry’s leading vets and foot trimmers showing best practice techniques and answering visitor queries.
World rugby refereeing legend, inspirational speaker and mental health ambassador Nigel Owens will address the issue of mental health in farming, something he is passionate about after having struggles himself. Since retiring from refereeing, Owens has been very busy with his farm in South Wales building up a pedigree herd of Hereford cattle.
The 2020 Gold Cup winner will also be announced as the competition celebrates its 100th year. The presentation will take place at 4pm on the NMR stand and is not to be missed as six top dairy producers vie for the prestigious award.
