The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF)


The RABDF is the only independent, specialist sectoral body dedicated to representing the interests of practical British dairy farmers. We are striving to ensure a more viable and sustainable future for British dairy farming. With the increasing legislation and financial constraints facing the industry, our role is more vital than ever.

Our voice has to be strong if it is to be heard. We want every dairy farmer in the Britain to become a member of our association. The more members we have the greater our impetus, which will in turn improve our chances of making sure your voice is heard wherever it can have influence.

Alongside our lobbying activities, the RABDF also run an annual programme of events designed to provide dairy farmers with opportunities for technology and knowledge transfer. There is no greater example of this than Livestock Event, which we organise in July each year in order to provide dairy farmers with a unique forum for sector specific information exchange. Our members receive two free tickets to Livestock Event each year amongst many other substantial benefits.



We are committed to continually evolving Happerley to provide the information everyone wants to see. We welcome all [email protected]
