THE second Borderway Dairy Expo at Carlisle will be held in March next year.

The initial event attracted around 6,000 visitors and organisers Harrison & Hetherington are aiming to attract more than 150 trade stands and 300-plus livestock entries in 2013.

Industry specialists will also be on site to discuss the latest news in breeding, science and farm technologies.

David Pritchard, operations director of Harrison & Hetherington and event organiser, said: “Following on from the success of Borderway Agri-Expo, the introduction of an event aimed at the dairy farming sector was a great success.

“Borderway UK Dairy Expo 2013 is set to be an even bigger success and we hope to see an increase in entries and footfall.

“This is a chance to highlight an industry that also plays such a huge role in the rural economy aside from other livestock operations, and the show and quality of dairy animals we saw earlier this year was a great tribute to just how far the industry has come.”

The Dairy Expo will take place on Saturday, March 9.
