A new countdown starts for UK Dairy Day; instead of being just over 2 months away sadly we now have to wait another 14 months for the dedicated dairy industry event to return to Telford.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that the 2020 event cannot take place on Wednesday 16th September at the International Centre, Telford.
Unfortunately, Government guidelines have not provided us with the assurance that UK Dairy Day can go ahead with the large numbers we anticipate attending. I know many of you will be frustrated that you will not be able to exhibit your cattle and we are disappointed that UK cattle genetics cannot be showcased this September at UK Dairy Day.
Since UK Dairy Day started in 2014, it has provided dairy farmers and the industry with a fantastic opportunity to network, do business and view a superb show of dairy breeds.
We thank everyone for the positive support in an attempt to make the event happen, however in light of lead times that are required by many of our exhibitors we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone until Wednesday 15th September 2021. Our top priority has to be the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors, employees, venue support team and the wider community.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to the 2021 event. In the meantime, please stay safe and be proud of the amazing commitment and hard work that British dairy farmers and the industry have delivered during these uncertain times.
Thank you, Edward Griffiths, Show Director
The UK Dairy Day Team, like many event organising teams throughout the UK, continue to closely monitor the situation and follow Government and Public Health guidance regarding COVID-19 pandemic.
Our top priority is the health and safety of our visitors, trade exhibitors, cattle exhibitors, employees, venue support team and the wider community. UK Dairy Day will only go ahead if the current social distancing rules are removed by September and we have permission from Public Health to hold the event.
We are currently actively working behind the scenes on all aspects of UK Dairy Day and we are having regular meetings with the team at the International Centre, along with monitoring current government advice. As it currently stands the event will go ahead on Wednesday 16th September at the International Centre, Telford, adhering to recommendations put forward by the Government and Public Health.
In the short term we would like to gauge your thoughts regarding attendance at UK Dairy Day and would be grateful if you could provide feedback on this short survey by 5pm on Monday 22nd June 2020.
