Insights into the current global milk market and accessing finance are just two of the topics at this year’s Women in Dairy conference on 20th September at Sixways Stadium, Worcester, delivered by a stellar line-up including CEO of First Milk Shelagh Hancock and head of agriculture at the Co-op Ciara Gorst.
A new Business and Policy Conference is to be held in London on Wednesday 18 October, announced the RABDF today (5 June). ‘Scoping the Future’ will be the theme of the event, which will focus on the UK dairy industry post-Brexit and herald a return to RABDF’s popular conference format which offers leading farmers opportunities to rub shoulders with policy-makers and supply chain leaders.
Dr Dick Esslemont was announced yesterday (27 April) as the recipient of the RABDF Princess Royal Award in a presentation by Her Royal Highness at Buckingham Palace. The award is one of the highest accolades within the dairy industry and is awarded each year to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the sector throughout their lifetime.
