RORY HOLDS DROP-IN SURGERY FOR FARMERS AT BORDERWAY UK DAIRY EXPO
Rory Stewart, MP for Penrith and The Border, will be holding an informal drop-in surgery at the British Blue Cattle Society stand at this year’s UK Dairy Expo at Carlisle’s Borderway Mart, on Saturday 7th March 2015.
The UK Dairy Expo is the leading dairy event in the UK and showcases the best of dairy cattle, dairy farming practice, and the latest developments in breeding, genetics, machinery, equipment, technology, environmental issues, and export opportunities.
Rory Stewart said: “The Annual UK Dairy Expo is where everyone in the dairy industry meets to exchange information and compare experiences of the year’s events, and of course in this year – when dairy farmers are having a very challenging time – I am pleased that I will be able to be at the UK Dairy Expo to meet with farmers, following on from the successful dairy surgery at Newton Rigg where I was able to take away some very valuable suggestions about how to address the current very serious obstacles in the dairy industry. Anyone who is there on the day is very welcome to come along and have a chat, and I look forward to seeing you there.”
Rory looks forward to meeting farmers at between 2 and 3pm on Saturday 7th March 2015, at the British Blue Cattle Society stand.
