Leading Dairy Farmer Embraces Success

29 September 2014

UK – A prize winning dairy producer has welcomed dairy farmers onto his holding in a bid to showcase his business.

Michael Eavis, Worthy Farm Somerset, winner of this year’s National Milk Records Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers Gold Cup, said he was thrilled to win the coveted prize.

He said: “We came back from Birmingham just over the moon and even, now—two months later—we’re still headlining the dairy farm news and people are coming to visit the farm in droves!”

August saw the Michael’s farm host an Alta showcase day, when top dairy daughters were displayed.

“Last month we had 300 farmers from across the country looking at our breeding and feeding management.

“Our festival catering staff are very good at dishing up some quick grub, and when 100 more turned up than was ordered for, they coped very well.”
