Rare Breeds Trust to stage national show at DELS

The Rare Breeds Survival Trust will be staging its national show at the Dairy Event and Livestock Show this year.

The trust will create a native breeds centre where sheep, cattle and pigs will be competing over the two-day event. Breed society stands and commentary about specific breeds and how they can be used to produce added value products will also be available.

Visitors will be able to find all the information they need to manage a successful smallholding, according to RABDF chief executive Nick Everington.

“From this event information will be able on the latest in nutrition, vet and medicine, rearing young stock, housing, muck handling, grassland management and opportunities for further diversification including wind power.”
