Dairy Event to Go Ahead Without Cattle

The Dairy Event will continue to go a head next week, 19 and 20 September at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, however following discussions with Defra and the imposition of cattle movement restrictions covering GB as a results of yesterday’s confirmation of the FMD outbreak in Surrey, RABDF will not be able to accept cattle exhibits and livestock on stands.

RABDF chief executive comments, Nick Everington: "Of course we are extremely disappointed that livestock will not be present at the event this year. We will ensure that stringent bio-security measures are put in place and we are still encouraging people to attend and support this important event for the livestock industry.

"Cattle classes are just one of the many features and attractions that livestock farmers come to see. The Dairy Event is a business to business event for livestock farmers and a comprehensive programme of features and attractions planned for this year will still take place. These include the new Farm Health Planning Exhibition and telehandler demonstrations as well as the existing and popular Beef from the Dairy Herd, Forage for Livestock, Diversifarm and MilkMade Exhibitions together with the UK's largest demonstrations of mixer wagons."

He adds: "Pre-event ticket sales are well ahead of last year and we are expecting big crowds to come and see the 406 trade stands, which include a record number of tractor manufacturers, as well as listen to HRH The Princess Royal who will officially open the event."
