Fancy holding the prestigious title of European Dairy Farmer of the Year? A new award scheme, celebrating successful European dairy farmers, hopes to improve sharing dairy best practice and highlight forward thinking initiatives.

 

Entrants must have been in the industry for at least three years and be in the top 30% in terms of regional sales. The judges will consider aspects such as commercial success, forward-looking concepts used, such as innovative housing, best use of technology, optimum labour use and working conditions.

 

Applications close on 31 August, 2006. Online registration forms are available from http://www.dairyfarmer.net/news/index-1.html
