GIRL power reigns at this year's foremost dairy showcase held in Carlisle.

The 10th Borderway Dairy Expo, organised by leading auctioneers, Harrison & Hetherington, and held on March 11 and 12 at their Borderway Exhibition Centre, will see an all female line up of Judges from the US, UK and Canada.

Molly Sloan from Lake Mills, Wisconsin, will judge the Holstein and Brown Swiss Shows, Terri Packard from Maryland will judge the Jersey and Red & White classes, Jane Arrell from Shropshire is the judge for the National British Friesian and Dairy Shorthorn classes, Katie Davidson from Scotland is judging the Ayrshire Show, and Marie Eve Veronneau from Quebec the International Showmanship Show.

Glyn Lucas, Senior Pedigree Dairy Auctioneer for Harrison & Hetherington said: “Since its inception 10 years ago, Borderway Dairy Expo has become the major livestock dairy exhibition in the UK, with the top dairy genetics from leading herds presented across the dozens of classes. We are delighted to welcome our panel of expert judges. It is a reflection of the calibre of the event, that we can attract leading lights of the international dairy industry to judge. All of our judges are experts in their own special fields, and together they highlight the opportunities for women within dairy farming.”

Borderway UK Dairy Expo, which attracts around 7,000 visitors is an important shop window for breeders and producers, bringing together some of the UK’s finest dairy stock.

Alongside this, it is also a trade event where businesses within the industry can showcase the latest research, developments and innovative technology that farmers can utilise to improve efficiency and productivity as they navigate the uncertain times ahead.

In conclusion Glyn said: “In addition to the livestock classes, this is a very important trade event, and after what has been for so many a very challenging period, I am sure that the opportunity to network and chat with likeminded people in the industry will be extremely welcome.”
