Glynllifon Students Get a Taste of the UK’s Dairy Industry

Students studying on Agricultural courses at Coleg Glynllifon recently got the opportunity to attend the most important annual event in the UK dairy industry’s calendar.

UK Dairy Day is a dedicated, annual, one-day event for the dairy industry, which is held at the International Centre in Telford, Shropshire at a key time of the year, when crucial plans and decisions are being made ahead of winter.

The students were able to glean key information from industry leaders through trade stands, seminars, breed villages, sharing knowledge zones and careers boards.

Martin Jardine, director of Agri Food at Coleg Glynllifon, said: “Giving our students the opportunity to visit and to learn from industry leaders and experts is a cornerstone of the kind of education we offer at Glynllifon. Making connections and learning from representatives from a wide range of sectors within the dairy industry is vitally important for our students.

“UK Dairy Day is regarded as the place to be for anyone interested in the dairy industry. Some of our students will progress into the dairy industry after college, so making the right connections and knowing what’s happening within this industry can only be a good thing.”

Welsh dairy industry exports are worth £120m annually. Welsh dairy farmers have the natural resources, the right climate and abundant water supplies to produce high yields of grass, allowing them to compete on a global scale.
