Harrison & Hetherington have announced the return of their national dairy showcase, Borderway UK Dairy Expo, which will take place at the Borderway Exhibition Centre, in Carlisle, on 10 March 2018.
The Expo, which is now in its seventh year and sponsored by Holstein UK, CIS, Clydesdale Bank, Carrs Billington, Farmers Guardian and Norbrook, is now a firm fixture in the dairy industry calendar. It attracts some of the finest dairy cattle in the UK and high profile international judges, as well as leading industry exhibitors. Companies who are interested in attending can download the trade stand application forms on line from the Harrison and Hetherington web site.
The Expo has grown to be a major dairy sector event, offering the latest developments in dairy practices, breeding, genetics and equipment and technology. As it takes place early March, when producers are considering management plans for the year ahead, many visitors attend from across the UK and Europe.
It has also established itself as a significant showcase for British dairy genetics and highlights the quality of stock that the UK has to offer. Last year, the star of the show was the mature Holstein, Peak Goldwyn Rhapsody exhibited by Yasmin Bradbury of the Derbyshire based Peak herd, and crowned Champion of Champions. Her daughter Milliedale Dusk Rhapsody was also awarded third in the mature Holstein class; the first time that mother and daughter have been in the final three in any class at the event. The Jersey breed also excelled at the event in 2017 with the Champion, Bluegrass Vindications Harp exhibited by the Fleming family, with CJ Henning and K Agnew receiving their 3rd Championship titles at Borderway UK Dairy Expo.
Commenting on next year’s event, Event Organiser and Operations Director at Harrison & Hetherington, David Pritchard said:
“With over 7000 visitors last year, the Dairy Expo has proved itself to be a leading UK event for all modern dairy farmers. It offers a tremendous opportunity to see the latest technical updates and developments and discuss relevant industry issues with industry specialists.
“With plans firmly underway for our seventh event in March 2018, we are looking forward to yet again announcing another fantastic line up of well renowned judges and exhibitors.
During the event, The John Dennison Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognises the dairy cattle breeder or exhibitor judged to be a high achiever and excellent role model within the dairy industry, will also be presented. The award is in memory of the life time industry contribution made by Cumbrian dairy farmer and highly regarded breeder, John Dennison. Former recipients have included Mike Miller of Shanael Holsteins, John Gribbon, Sammy McCormick, of the Hilltara Holsteins, Alister Laird of Blyth Bridge, Peebleshire. The award was presented to Mark Nutsford owner of the Riverdane Holstein herd in 2017.
“We are delighted that Borderway UK Dairy Expo has in such a short space of time become a such a tremendous showcase for the dairy industry; with world class dairy cattle, innovative products and highly professional and knowledgeable experts. I encourage everyone to attend to see what the sector has to offer,” concludes David.

The event brings together all facets of the dairy industry – farmers, students, breeders, geneticists, vets, feed merchants, dairy equipment suppliers and milk buyers as well as professional service providers, charities, and colleges. For anyone connected to the dairy industry, it’s the event of the year; an opportunity to network, share knowledge, learn and, most importantly, do business. UK Dairy Day is fortunate to have support from across the industry, with various businesses investing in sponsorship opportunities. Principal Partners returning to the 2017 event are Cogent Breeding, NWF Agriculture, Eprinex, Barclays and Holstein UK. The event hosts The National Holstein Show and The National Ayrshire Show along with classes for Brown Swiss, Dairy Shorthorn, Guernsey and Jersey breeds. UK Dairy Day is Dairy Pro accredited for three points Livestock Production Systems (LP), Business Management (BM) and Personal Development (PD) and will feature a CPD Knowledge Trail for visitors to gain at least 12 Dairy Pro points.
