Another event has been rescheduled because of increased numbers of coronavirus cases, this time in the UK.

Dairy-Tech will return to Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, for its 2022 event, which was originally set for February 2, on Thursday, April 7.

The Covid 19 pandemic forced the 2021 event to take the form of a virtual program, but organizers now say they are looking forward to a physical event in April.

Organizers the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF) said the event will “continue to showcase ground-breaking technology, be the platform for new product launches – introducing the latest innovation and services and deliver a wide variety of speaker sessions addressing the key topics affecting the industry.

“The event will continue to be aimed at progressive dairy professionals regardless of their herd size or system type, reflecting the transformation of the sector over recent years, where it has been recognised that farmers must be competitive and able to match both their size and system to their available resources and milk contract.”

RABDF managing director Matt Knight said, “Upholding the health and safety of visitors, members, exhibitors, speakers and our staff is paramount. However, due to the unprecedented number of cases of coronavirus over the last few weeks, we feel the best and most responsible option is to postpone the event until later in the year when cases historically have dropped.

“By April, the hope is more people will have received their booster jab and levels of coronavirus will be lower. The event on 7 April will also be before silaging starts, making it more accessible for farmers attending.”

There will be more than 50 speakers at the event, as well as more than 80 product launches and around 300 exhibitors.
