Royal Cornwall Show - 4-6 June 2015
Valence the #MilkRace cow left Nottingham last week to join the #DiscoverDairy team at the country's biggest annual county show in North Cornwall for its 222nd year. Although Valence didn’t participate in the livestock judging she welcomed hundreds of visitors coming to #DiscoverDairy in the Farmer’s Pavillion.
Our regional Cornish dairy farmer Daniel Rowe was also on hand to help show people how to play the Trust The Tractor game as well as talking to many about real life dairy farming and how people can help by taking the #DairyPromise . The Royal Cornwall was definitely a great show and Valence is now gearing up for the next exciting event at the Royal Highland.
Royal Highland Show - 18 -21 June 2015
Great to see so many people at the #RHS2015! Many of you got the chance to speak with Scottish dairy farmers, including our regional Scott - James Rankin over the four-day event, held at Ingliston in Edinburgh, as well as enjoying playing the Trust The tractor game.
We shared the stand with our Potato colleagues and Potato Pete had fun with Vallence as well as helping many visitors play Potato twister!
We're packing up to get ready for the Royal Welsh where we hope to meet many more of you. In the meantime keep improving those gaming skills.
The Royal Welsh Show took place this week at The Showground in Powys and we were there with Valence to welcome hundreds of you onto the #DiscoverDairy stand. Thanks to all of you that took the time to take #DairyPromise, much appreciated and you can see some of the fun as posted on our Social Hub and Facebook page.
Many of you also took time to talk to us and Abi Reader and Hopkin Evans, dairy farmers who were flying the flag for Wales.
We’ve got one more event to go and we’re busy packing our glo sticks and tent for the Big Feastival in August......
