Farming events. So many to go to, so little time. We have wandered the www to find the 2016 events that matter most for beef and dairy farmers. There’s a huge amount of advice and knowledge that’s waiting to be soaked up. And a lot of it is free.
What are you waiting for?
Grass Research Day 29th June | Tadcaster, Yorkshire
Learn how best to utilise grass for the benefit of your cattle, your bottom line and your environmental credentials.
Join 17,000 farmers at the leading B2B event for the UK livestock industry. Inside the expansive NEC Arena you can expect working machinery demonstrations, seminars and foot trimming demonstrations as well as National Dairy & Beef Shows.
UK Dairy Day 2016 14th September 2016 | Telford, Shropshire
If knowledge is power, then expect to leave UK Dairy Day feeling more than a little brawnier. The main focus is on sharing knowledge - and you can expect a number of presentations on relevant dairy farming issues designed to educate, engage and inspire. There will also be trade stands and a cattle show.
Held at the Bath & West Showground, this one day event has become one of the most important dates in the dairy farmer’s calendar, combining over 300 trade stands with an exhibition of top quality dairy cattle. The show is registered with Dairy Pro and attendance will qualify for 3 Dairy Pro points.
Open to both to the trade and to a wide cross section of farmers, this is regarded as the number one event for farmers eager to seek out the products, services, advice and information necessary for their farming businesses.
DairyLeader Forum 2016 30th November | Location TBC
The DairyLeader Forum brings together the most forward-thinking dairy farmers in the industry to share pioneering practices and show attendees how they could benefit from taking a more innovative approach.
Carolyn qualified from the RVC in 1995, and following time in mixed veterinary practice in Gloucestershire joined Zoetis (previously known as Pfizer Animal Health)in 2000 as a field based veterinary adviser.
In 2003 Carolyn became National Veterinary Manager focusing on young stock health, respiratory and infectious disease, and emerging diseases within the cattle sector. During this time she has sat on various committees including the British Cattle Veterinary Association Council, the NBA health committee, and the DEFRA farm health planning sub-committee (beef), and continues to be actively involved in various industry bodies.
Although now based ‘down south’ Carolyn still considers herself a true Yorkshire lass, and wishes she could be on the side of a hill in the Dales somewhere with her bonkers black labrador!
