The focal point of the show the ‘Dairy Hub’ is set to house the event’s featured speakers, seminars and workshops with our keynote speaker taking to the stage just after the official event opening.
The programme of speakers, some global, will cover the most topical issues currently highlighted within the industry so expect to hear more on AMR and the strategies required to help reduce its use; mega dairies and how they are using the latest technological advances; Brexit and its effects on labour, exports, milk price and access to markets; organics workshops and its place within the industry; the importance of soil/slurry/manure/water and forage testing and sampling, use of GPS mapping and the analysis of test evaluation.
Also watch out for further announcements on speakers covering slurry separation, the public perception of dairy farming, diversification and the opportunities available for new entrants.
The RABDF stand will adjoin the ‘Dairy Hub’ and will provide visitors with the chance for ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions with key industry figures and Council members. We will also be championing all RABDF activity including policy work, the APPG, membership, farm walks, Gold Cup, Women in Dairy and conference news.
There will also be the opportunity to explore our work into the importance of overseas labour to the UK dairy farming sector and to find out exactly how we aim to have our voice heard within Government.
