Women in Dairy

Women in Dairy is an initiative from RABDF and Promar International and supported by AHDB Dairy, designed to bring women working in our industry together through regional discussion group meetings to learn, network and promote the image of dairy farming.

Our aims are:

  • Connect – Bringing women together from across the dairy industry.
  • Share – Exchange knowledge and experiences to develop skills and confidence.
  • Inspire – Encouraging innovative thinking and vision for the future of UK dairy.

Our Activities

Local groups

Women in Dairy operates through a network of regional groups which focus on a variety of topics such as calf rearing, succession, finance, disease control and animal health and promotion of dairy products. The topics covered are chosen by the groups and we use industry experts to give you the best information available.

Joining a group is a great way to meet other women in your local area, learn and share skills and get involved in something new.

Find your local group using the map opposite or in the list below.

Annual Conference

Our annual, one day conference takes place in September each year. Women in Dairy members receive a 25% discount on tickets for the conference among other benefits.
