With an all-female line up of judges, Borderway UK Dairy Expo 2022 returns for the tenth year to Borderway Exhibition Centre, Carlisle, Cumbria on March 11 and March 12.

As one of the UK’s leading dairy industry events, Borderway UK Dairy Expo brings together the very best that the British dairy industry has to offer, including recognising commitment and, new for this year, a series of industry seminars.

With exhibitors spanning the entire UK, over 350 livestock entries of some of the finest livestock genetics the industry has been received, and it will act as a shop window for breeders and producers alike.

Organised by Harrison & Hetherington (H&H) Borderway UK Dairy Expo embraces the latest genetics, science, research, and technology within the dairy business, and attracts in the region of 7,000 farmers, traders, and industry experts.

A major platform for networking, it offers a dynamic hub for advice, information, and knowledge exchange, which is echoed by the number of trade stand attendees.

Judging this year is a highly respected all-female panel travelling from America, Canada and across the UK. 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 Dumfriesshire Scotland is judging the Ayrshire show; and Marie Eve Veronneau from Quebec the International Showmanship Show.

Commenting ahead of this annual event Harrison & Hetherington’s Senior Pedigree dairy auctioneer, Glyn Lucas, said:

“We are delighted to be able to return this year for our tenth ever. In the years since we launched this event, it has grown in size, scale and reputation, and is now renowned internationally for the high calibre of stock it attracts.

“Judging this level of stock is not a task for the faint hearted and our all-female line-up of judges this year are extremely well qualified for the job.

“It is testament to the stature of the event that we can attract leading lights of the international dairy industry to judge.

“All our judges are experts in their own special fields and their eye for detail is second to none.”
