Dairy-Tech 2020

Dairy-Tech is a dairy event tailored for the new generation of dairy farmer, manager and technician. 

Its first ever event in February showcased ground-breaking technology; inspired uptake of the latest science and field-based skills, introduced a fresh range of innovative products and services and pioneered new global concepts in management efficiency.

Due to the transformation in the dairy industry over recent years it is becoming increasingly apparent that farmers need to be competitive, and irrespective of their system type and market they supply, they need to match both to their available resources and milk contract.

Regardless of their cost base, future successful dairy businesses must be informed, resilient, proactive and efficient; Dairy-Tech provides this platform, alongside a recognition that dairy farming has become a professional industry.

Dairy-Tech will showcase a fresh show that recognises the pressing needs of the modern dairy professional, allowing them to gain maximum exposure to new and exciting industry innovations relevant to their business, despite a large variation in cost base and system.
