Organisers of this year's Dairy Event at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire have recorded a record number of cattle entries.

More than 300 stall bookings have been received from almost 90 exhibitors and the waiting list is in to double figures, according the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers.

The event takes place on Wednesday and Thursday September 21 and 22 and will include a keynote address from Lord Bach, Minister for Sustainable Farming and Food.

He will be followed by the NFU's Gwyn Jones exploring the issue of how to find the right milk contract while James Letts, from the Environment Agency, will discuss dealing with farm waste.

Among the judges will be Mick Gould, of Grange Farm, Bomere Heath, Shrewsbury, who will be judging the Holstein section, while James Simpson of Nantwich, Cheshire, will be in the British Friesian ring
