1st British Dairy Symposium a succes

The recent 1st British Dairy Symposium, hosted by Kemin UK on 27th November in Stafford has proven a huge success.

Attracting in excess of 100 delegates, the audience included many representatives from the feed compounding business, blenders and mineral manufacturers, independent nutritionists and veterinarians as well as a number of leading progressive dairy farmers. Attendance was also welcomed to Dairy Herd Management students from Reaseheath College and Rodbaston College. The event also attracted international interest with the participation of a delegation from Ireland.

Covering areas of major concern to the British dairying sector (particularly fertility issues, environmental aspects and strategies to improve dairy cow health status), the Symposium, themed "Sustaining the Dairy Herd", included presentations by key European specialists from the UK, France, Belgium and Italy.

Many positive reactions have been received from the delegates particularly with respect to the informative and enjoyable format of the days' proceedings.

More information about the Symposium, including the proceedings, is available from Kemin UK Ltd (info.uk@kemin.com, tel: 01652.651.010).
