The organisers of the National Dairy Show, an event that brings together the dairy farming community at the Green Glens Arena in County Cork, have announced that this year’s event is going virtual.
Over the last 38 years, the show has developed a reputation as the premier indoor agricultural event in Ireland as well as the meeting place for dairy farmers and dairy businesses.
The event has also established a reputation for introducing new innovations and technology to Irish dairy farmers as highlighted by their annual National Dairy Innovation Awards.
The cancellation of the physical show due to Covid-19 restrictions now moves attention to an ambitious and innovative plan, using the latest technology and expertise in virtual events, to roll out the “premium” dairy virtual event for the Irish dairy sector.
The virtual show will be held over two evenings, the October 28th and 29th, and will include the National Dairy Innovation Award presentation, expert panels and other aspects of the physical show.
The 2020 running of the National Dairy Innovation Award will be the ninth edition of the awards, which was won last year by Limerick-based Anuland.
