An utterly enjoyable day at UK Dairy Day 2016


UK Dairy Day 2016

On 14 September, we attended UK Dairy Day 2016 at Telford International Centre, hosted by our long serving customers, Holstein UK. To show our support, we gladly sponsored the car parking on the day which meant free car parking for all visitors. Around 8,000 visitors and 170 cattle attended the event which, coupled with the weather, made for a thoroughly enjoyable day.

One of the highlights of the day was the live cow painting which was positioned just to the left of our stand. The cow painting helped educate visitors about the internal workings of our four-legged milk bearing friends. Fortunately, the painting was left to the experts!

Another main feature was the prestigious Cattle Show which took place at the centre of the Telford International Centre. The show saw immaculate cattle from all breeds, Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Dairy Shorthorn, Jersey and Holstein, on parade. You can see the list of winners here.

Attending the event was Account Manager Duncan Crowther, who went on to say, “Holstein have been a Sandicliffe Motor Contracts customer for many years now which is why we are more than happy to strengthen our relationship by taking the opportunity to sponsor UK Dairy Day 2016. It also gives us the opportunity to meet the people behind the dairy industry and see how we can help support them with contract hire and fleet management solutions.”All of this was made possible thanks to the event organisers, Holstein UK, who did an exceptional job for the second year running. As one of the top breeding organisations in the country, Holstein UK prides itself on assisting its members in breeding profitable and productive dairy cattle.

Sue Cope, Event Director, commented on the shows’ success; “UK Dairy Day 2016 has been sensational; I thank everyone – visitors, exhibitors, sponsors, competitors, staff and helpers – together we have made an incredible event for the dairy sector. Visitor numbers were up, cattle entries were up and so too were spirits as people networked, chatted and did business.”
