The 2nd Borderway UK Dairy Expo 2013 took place over the weekend of 8-9 March 2013.
This is a significant event in the agricultural calendar, hosted by H & H Auction mart, the emphasis was on showcasing the best dairy livestock and the latest technology from the dairy industry suppliers.
The event commenced on Friday 8 March with Clipping Competitions and the European Showmanship Competition, these were followed by an evening Global Classic Sale. Saturday 9 March was the judging of the cattle classes throughout the day with a fantastic display of livestock on show including seven breeds of cattle (Holstein, Jersey, Ayrshire, Red and White, Brown Swiss, Dairy Shorthorn and British Friesian).
The event was rounded off with the All Britain Awards and Dance next door at the Shepherds Inn. In pride of place over the weekend was David Allen's very own dairy cow, situated on the H & H trade stand. Myself, Michael, Emma, Dan and Sarah visited the show over the 2 days and caught up with a number of clients and exhibitors.
The Expo not only attracted 1000’s of visitors local and throughout the UK, but also international guests including Canada and Vietnam, a fantastic event we were very grateful to be a part of.
