EXPANDING dairy herds to maximise production and profit will be the theme of a forum on herd management at this year’s Borderway UK Dairy Expo.

The Beyond 400 forum – Borderway’s first major industry event of its kind – is free and open to everyone attending the showcase at Carlisle on Saturday, March 8. Industry leaders will focus on the issues of expanding a herd to more than 400 cows and look in depth at management and protocols to increase efficiently and ensure optimum health.

Farmers who have made the move to larger herds will share their experiences and there will be presentations from the veterinary and financial perspectives from 11am plus the opportunity to ask questions.
