Dumfries Show 2015

The sun was shining bright at the 2015 Dumfries Show on 1 August and we all had a great day! We enjoyed meeting our clients, friends and business partners on our stand and around the show field.

It was great to see everyone attending and supporting the show.

Tom Riddet proudly presented Mr Matt Ross with The Champion and Reserve prize with his champion cow Beauty!

Like with all agricultural shows we’re supporting this year, we had two competitions running on the day.The main competition was our farm-gate milk pricing quiz. As the dairy industry faces increasing pressure from supermarkets squeezing margins, we want to do everything we can to support dairy farmers and draw attention to the crisis situation.  We asked entrants to guess the price per litre of milk at different points in time, and we had lots of entries! The winner was Mr Callum Kennedy. He will be receiving the prize of half a tonne of cattle cake very soon.

Our second competition was all about our squeezy cow Sterling!  We asked visitors to take a creative selfie with Sterling somewhere on the show field, and tweet it using the #AWMoo15. There were some really creative selfies and it was great to see Sterling getting out and about enjoying the show, including taking some time to meet some cattle cousins and chilling in a hot tub, but there can only be one winner! The winner was Heidi Allison!

We only have a few agricultural shows left that we’re going to be attending this season so make sure you come by our stand to say hello and take part in our competitions. We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
