Over 300 farmers and industry representatives from across Cumbria gathered at Dolphenby Farm, near Penrith on Tuesday 21 August, for an exclusive conference held by the NFU North West and First Milk.
The conference brought together some of the industry's top speakers as they shared their insights about opportunities in the dairy sector both in the UK and internationally.
The conference speakers were International Dairy Consultant Mark Voorbergen, First Milk chief executive Kate Allum, NFU chief dairy advisor Robert Newbery and the Rt Hon Jim Paice MP, Minister of State for Food and Agriculture.
