Dairy Event 2006

There’s no doubt the mood in the dairy industry has been dominated by milk price cuts, but there was still plenty of upbeat news at last week’s Dairy Event.

Key among the draws for visitors was Lely UK’s live robotic milking demonstration which had more than 5000 viewers in two days.

Elsewhere at the event the cattle judging proved as popular as ever, with Ayrshire leader Haresfoot Bella Six taking top honours ahead of the Holstein champion.

On top of this, visitors were also able to see all the latest innovations in dairy husbandry, management and feeding from all the leading suppliers.
