Borderway UK Dairy Expo Returns For Second Year

"It is very important to have dairy events like the Borderway UK Dairy Expo to showcase stock as it demonstrates to the world that the UK is still very much at the forefront of the dairy industry,” says Andrew Wilson, winner of the Grand Champion of Champions at the inaugural event.

With over 300 entries for the 2nd Borderway UK Dairy Expo already received, the show is set to build on the success of last year. The first event saw over 6000 visitors at Carlisle to see some of the finest genetics the UK dairy industry has to offer.

Taking place on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th March at Carlisle’s Borderway Exhibition Centre, farmers, breeders and judges will be coming from around to world to view the cattle entries, the International Dairy Youth Championships, the Classic Global Sale and 150 trade stands and exhibits.

Hosts and owners of the multi-million pound Exhibition Hall and 5 adjoining sale rings, are leading livestock auctioneers Harrison & Hetherington.

Launched after identifying the need for a dairy cattle Spring showcase for breeders and farmers, the Borderway UK Dairy Expo is an opportunity to compete and catch up on industry news and technological developments.

Commenting in advance of this year’s event Operations Director, David Pritchard says, “We are delighted that this event is back for a second year as this underlines the importance of providing such a platform for the UK dairy industry. We will be aiming to ensure that the event contributes to the development of our industry by emphasising both the commercial and pedigree aspects of the business.”

The classes and exhibits run over two days and begin on Friday 8th March with the International Dairy Youth Championships and the Global Classic Sale followed by the Cattle Classes and Presentations on Saturday 9th March.
