Telford’s annual UK Dairy Day has become the latest event in the farming calendar to be postponed or cancelled following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to take place this September, it has been rescheduled for Wednesday 15th September 2021.
“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,” said Sue Cope, UK Dairy Day event director and CEO of Holstein UK.
“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.”
The 2021 show will welcome over 300 trade exhibitors, 9,000 visitors and cows showcasing the exceptional standard of UK dairy cattle.
Sue added: “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.”
