On Thursday 3rd August, Dugdale Nutrition continued to proudly support and sponsor Gisburn Auction Mart's 'Dugdale Dairy Day' which takes place on the first Thursday of EVERY month!
It couldn't have fallen on a better day, as Thursday was #FARM24. An annual event run by the Farmers Guardian that encourages British Farmers to take to social media for one day to post pictures and videos to show and pledge their support by explaining the work they're doing that day!
Judge: Mr Thomas Herd - part of the Lancashire Young Breeders Team.
Dairy Rostrum: Eleanor O'Neill & Tom Greenow - Gisburn Auction Mart.
The dairy show and sale was as exceptional as always with a mix of milk on offer, meaning there was something for all! Thank you to Mr Thomas Herd for judging, strong classes put forward and a swift job done.
