ALL YOU NEED TO STAY AHEAD IN TOUGH TIMES

Now in its second year, the Spotlight in Profit exhibit at the European Dairy Farming Event is the site worth visiting for every dairy farmer looking for a way to survive the current challenges facing the industry.

Organised by Midland Bank, the Milk Development Council, Dairy Research and Consultancy, the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers and FW, the exhibit combines technical and business management displays with informative discussion seminars. The latest Milk Development Council research results will also be available to visitors.

The farmers weekly display and competition will focus on four ways to cope with a lower milk price: Improving health and fertility, forage efficiency, maximising available price premiums and managing machinery and labour costs. Here we offer a flavour of whats on offer.
