Commenting on the show, Borderway UK Dairy Expo Livestock co-ordinator Glyn Lucas said. “The event has been a tremendous success and I’d like to thank all the cattle exhibitors and sale consignors for making the inaugural show such a wonderful occasion. I’d also like to congratulate our breed judges, Brad Sayles and Donald Dubois, as well as International Youth Championship judge, Erica Rijneveld, for their participation and deliberations.
“The quality of cattle on display was at the highest level and owners and staff should be congratulated on turning out the animals in peak condition. On behalf of the Dairy Expo team, I would also like to thank all our sponsors, trade exhibitors and visitors for their involvement.”
