The best of breeds

So much to see and do!

The event hosts more than 3000 spectacular cows, sheep, horses, goats and fancy poultry – with the livestock judging and many happy breeders being awarded winning rosettes!

In the main arena, there was show jumping, birds of prey demonstrations – and even polo matches.

It really was a spectacular event and it was wonderful to see more than 80,000 people support the event over the two fun-packed days!

Special thanks to Lightcliffe Skoda for providing our roadshow vehicle and to our crew:  Magen, Graham Hughes, Paul Middlehurst, Phil Roberts, Barbara Wilkinson and Smithy for helping out with the live broadcast.
