Announcement that the annual Borderway UK Dairy Expo will return to Carlisle in 2022.

The UK’s leading livestock auctioneers, Harrison & Hetherington, has today announced that Borderway UK Dairy Expo will return next year on 12th March 2022. Held annually at Borderway Mart, Carlisle, Dairy Expo has become a key industry event for dairy farmers across the UK and Europe;  regularly seeing in the region of 7,000 visitors, it is now one of the greatest events of its kind.

Like many large-scale events, Dairy Expo was unfortunately cancelled earlier this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was, however, fortunate to be able to run in March 2020 and was in fact, for many, the final fling before the UK was plunged into lockdown for the first time.

With the pandemic now behind us, organiser Harrison & Hetherington is looking to the future with a welcome return for the 10th Borderway UK Dairy Expo in March 2022. Glyn Lucas, Dairy Auctioneer for Harrison & Hetherington, said: “The team behind the Expo were devastated when we had to cancel the 2021 event due to lockdown. However, we are all very much looking forward to its return for the 10th time in 2022, which is real testament to its success and placement? within the dairy industry.”

UK Dairy Expo now prides itself as one of the key calendar dates in the dairy industry. It acts as a shop window for breeders and producers and brings 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 we navigate the uncertain times ahead.

Glyn Lucas adds: “The agricultural sector is facing vast changes and it is the responsibility of all those within to embrace those and find a way forward. Dairy Expo is an ideal networking event where people can make the most of having access to recent industry trends and developments.”

In addition to the livestock classes, the Borderway UK Dairy Expo programme will also include Breed Society shows, the John Dennison Lifetime Achievement award, a next generation school programme plus various demonstrations, details of which will be finalised closer to the event.
