Discounted tickets are now on sale for Dairy-Tech 2023, on Wednesday, 1 February, at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, with new show features ready to greet visitors.
A brand-new Lameness Village will help farmers get to grips with managing lameness in their herd with expert support, advice and tools available.
This has been launched due to increasing focus on the issue as part of the government’s Animal Health and Welfare Pathway, which pins lameness as one of its main priorities.
There will also be lots of resource to help farmers get to grips with the rollout of the Environment Land Management (ELM) scheme, including talks from various Defra representatives, including Farming Minister Mark Spencer.
Usual favourites are also featured, including the Dairy Hub, which offers guidance and insight on key industry issues and the Innovation Hub, where new products, ideas, technology and concepts will be discussed.
Tickets bought before the show are priced at £17 per person compared to £20 at the door. In addition, members of the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF) receive two free complimentary tickets to the event.
Show organiser and RABDF Managing Director Matthew Knight said: “Next year’s event is designed to offer practical advice to farmers during what continues to be a volatile marketplace.
“Whether it’s understanding how to make the most out of ELMs or finding ways to cut costs, review your business or better your milk price, Dairy-Tech 2023 has it all.
“We are also fortunate to welcome two renowned global dairy speakers- Prof Frank Mitloehner from the Department of Animal Science at UC Davis, USA, who will kick off proceedings by discussing what a sustainable dairy system looks like. He is joined by fellow US speaker Dr Matt Utt, Senior Dairy Product Analyst at Zoetis, who will outline how to hit the basics regarding dairy profitability.”
Mr Knight added: “Agriculture is going through some significant transitions, making Dairy-Tech 2023 the ideal place to keep abreast with what is happening in the industry and offering farmers and landowners the most appropriate advice to adapt to some of the changes.
“It is also an opportune time for farmers to see some of the new technology available that could be eligible for grant support under the Farming Investment Fund.
“Dairy-Tech prides itself on being the go-to place for everything relating to new technology, concepts and techniques and never has there been a time when embracing some of these new products has been as important.”
