On Friday 10 and Saturday 11 March 2017 Harrison & Hetherington held its sixth Dairy Expo. This is a significant event in the agricultural calendar, with the emphasis on showcasing the best dairy livestock and the latest technology from the dairy industry suppliers. The 2017 UK Dairy Expo event was once again a great show for the dairy industry, with nearly 380 livestock entries and over 100 trade stands in attendance.
David Allen was proud to support the event and Susan Johnstone and I had the pleasure of attending on behalf of the team. On Friday, we sponsored the Ayrshire In Calf Heifer class where I presented the prize to Sandyford Vitality Bunty 2. On Saturday morning, when the main judging took place, Susan presented the prizes in the Brown Swiss Senior Cow class.
Saturday was the busier day for visitors, with a wide range of trade stands to visit with the grand finale being the championship presentations.
All in all, it was a great event and we’re looking forward to supporting both the Agri Expo later this year and Dairy Expo again in 2018.
