With 14,800 square metres of trade space, more than 300 trade stands, more than 6,000 visitors, upwards of 300 competitive cattle entries, a compelling programme of seminars and speakers addressing livestock housing plus free parking, The Dairy Show truly does live up to its billing as the largest farming event in the south west.

Taking place at the Bath & West Showground, Somerset on Wednesday, October 2, The Dairy Show is an essential date in the farming calendar, combining a comprehensive trade show with an exhibition of world class dairy cattle.

The show is delighted that once again it will be home to the National Shows of the Jersey Cattle Society of the UK and the English Guernsey Cattle Society.

2019 heralds a new chapter in this forward thinking, progressive event with the arrival of Mole Valley Farmers as headline sponsor for the next three years.

The show’s national significance is exemplified by the fact that it attracts over 300 trade stands from the UK and beyond, representing businesses from across the agricultural industry which include the likes of Mole Valley Farmers, O.T Seymour, S.W Machine Hire, Kingshay & Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

This ‘one stop shop’ event offers visitors the opportunity to meet milk buyers, feed suppliers, AI companies and consultants, and also showcases an extensive display of agricultural technology, veterinary science and pharmaceutical advances.

With so many movers and shakers in attendance the event offers the perfect, profitable networking opportunity, while topical seminars on livestock housing provide plenty of food for thought and discussion throughout the day.

This year’s speakers include Duncan Forbes (Dairy Research Director at Kingshay), Matt Sellers & Mike Bryan (Galebreaker Group Ltd) and Mike Steele (Micron Bio-Systems, Director Technical Services).

Dairy cattle are at the heart of the show with more than 300 entries representing the six main breeds, plus classes for calves and Junior Showmanship to encourage the exhibitors of the future.

On the eve of the show the showground will play host to the ever-popular Dairy Industry Dinner which features the Dairy Industry Award; an award that is presented to the individual who has made the greatest contribution towards the development of the Dairy Industry.

Tickets are on sale now from bathandwest.com/the-dairy-show at £15 and £13 for students. All visitors pay £17 on the gate.
