Meet the Judges
Alongside the coloured breed classes, UK Dairy Day will host the National Shows for Brown Swiss, Ayrshire and Holstein. Like previous years the cattle show will take centre stage in Hall 2 offering visitors, media and the dairy industry a spectacular display of show cattle competing for a prize fund of over £25,000. All the classes will run throughout the whole day with heifer classes in the morning following by all senior classes in the afternoon. The Interbreed Pair heifer championship will be presented at lunchtime followed by Interbreed Pair Senior Championship late afternoon and the show will close with the Overall Interbreed Dairy Pairs.
The cattle infrastructure sponsor for a 2nd year is NWF Agriculture supporting free entry for cattle exhibitors. The stall booking deadline is Friday 2nd August and the cattle entry deadline is Friday 30th August 2019.
UK Dairy Day Cattle Show Manager and Chief Steward, Lynden Bustard, comments; “Last year’s UK Dairy Day saw a fantastic display of coloured breeds and I have no doubt this year will be even better. The cattle show presents an excellent opportunity for breeders to show their cattle in a competitive environment under the professional eye of an excellent judging panel”.
