RABDF Prince Philip Award goes to Ridgeway Science

Ridgeway Science has been presented with the RABDF Prince Philip Award by His Royal Highness at Buckingham Palace.

The honour was made to the Gloucestershire based company for research and development in the field of dairy farming and the most practical, relevant and best technical exhibit at Livestock 2012.

“We feel honoured and privileged to win this award in what was the first year we had exhibited P4 Rapid at the event,” says Ridgeway Science’s Marcus Hollingshead. “P4 Rapid is a very practical piece of kit, designed by a dairy farmer’s son to be accurate quick and easy to use - enabling producers to monitor heat, cycling, pregnancy and some fertility problems. Since P4 Rapid’s official launch at Livestock 2012, it has not only gained unprecedented interest from British dairy farmers, but from those in 25 other countries where we have either active distributors or companies in discussion.”

A Certificate of Merit was awarded to Milk-Rite, of Wiltshire for its Impulse Air system, a revolutionary liner designed to improve milk flow along with cow health and welfare during milking.

RABDF’s chief executive, Nick Everington says: “As organiser of the Livestock Event, we are focused on communicating to farmers the benefits of best practice and technology transfer which will help towards improving their businesses’ overall efficiency. We are pleased to reward those exhibitors who excel in technical innovation and presentation, and Ridgeway Science’s P4 Rapid was an excellent example.” He adds: “RABDF will once again be staging the award at the Livestock Event 2013, staged at The NEC, Birmingham on 3 and 4 July, and we look forward to another set of high calibre entries.”
