We enjoyed a great couple of days attending the National Dairy Show over the weekend for its 40th anniversary show in its usual venue of the Green Glen Arena, Millstreet, Co. Cork.
There was super attendance on both days, all enjoying the showcasing of some of the top quality pedigree Holstein / Friesian / Jersey in the country. We were treated to some excellent competitors in their respective classes, demonstrating the superb examples of the different traits of the Holstein - Friesians and Jersey breeds.
There was a great range of exhibitors displaying the extensive ranges on offer in animal health, breeding, dairy technology, research and feeding, to name but a few.
Seminars throughout the weekend kept everyone very well informed and up-to-speed; various hot topics such as sustainable farming and future trends within the dairy sector were observed.
