More than 270 cattle have been entered for the competitive classes at the Livestock Event to be held at The NEC, Birmingham, on Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 July. The National Dairy Show has received more than 190 entries, while the new National Charolais Show has a line-up of 78 entries.
The livestock classes will this year take place in one of the main exhibition halls at the NEC, enabling livestock to be a great deal more prominent and enhance the experience for both visitors and exhibitors, explained RABDF chief executive Nick Everington.
“The event will provide all dairy cattle exhibitors with the opportunity to show their pedigree cows to commercial dairy farmers milking 80% of the UK’s cows, as well as to international visitors, while for Charolais breeders and young enthusiasts, we warmly welcome them to what is our first ever beef show at the event.”
The National Dairy Show will feature six dairy breeds competing for prestigious silverware and attractive prize money. The National Charolais Show, making its debut at the Livestock Event, is the breed society’s first ever show staged exclusively for Breedplan recording members.
