Dairy Event Cancelled Due to FMD Outbreak

The event had been due to continue to go a head next week without cattle exhibits and livestock on stands however yesterday (Friday) event organiser the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers decided to cancel the event.

Lyndon Edwards, RABDF council chairman said:  “It is with great regret that I have to announce the cancellation of the Dairy Event.

“The Council Members of RABDF, organisers of the event, have taken specialist veterinary and professional advice and concluded that following the resurgence of the Foot and Mouth outbreak, it would be seriously unwise and irresponsible to hold a meeting of 10,000 farmers in one place, particularly as they will have travelled from all parts of the UK.

“We are still unsure that the virus has not spread outside the Surrey surveillance zone and a decision had to be made today as contractors and stand holders were planning to build the event over the weekend.”
