UK Dairy Industry Honours Industry Star at UK Dairy Expo 2018
The John Dennison Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented at the Borderway UK Dairy Expo for the sixth year running. This award is in memory of the life time industry contribution made by Cumbrian dairy farmer and highly regarded breeder John Dennison.
The aim of this award is to recognise the dairy cattle breeder or exhibitor judged to be a high achiever and exemplary role model within the dairy industry.
Last year’s award was presented to Mark Nutsford owner of the Riverdane Holstein herd in Cheshire.
On receiving his award, Mark commented: “I have had many wins in the show ring, however this is the best thing that I have ever been awarded. John Dennison was a true friend and mentor and I am totally overcome”. Mark has enjoyed unparalleled success showing at all the major shows in the UK and has been a major source of encouragement and help to others.
This unique award is given to the nominee judged to have the perfect combination of ability, sportsmanship, integrity and character within the Dairy Industry. The winner will be announced and presented with their award at the Borderway UK Dairy Expo on 10th March.
Glynn Lucas at Harrison and Hetherington said: “This award really is a unique award for UK Dairy Industry. It recognises people who shine and who have put their lifetimes work into the industry, just like all the previous winners”.
