The Cheshire County Show is renowned for its cattle classes but the event also boasts a championship standard poultry section, one of the largest light horse entry of any county show in the country and a dog class with well over 2000 competitors.
There will also be many other livestock classes including sheep, pigs and goats. Entries are expected to be up on previous years with another excellent set of competitive classes likely in 2014.
Demand for trade spaces is also at record levels, with more than four kilometres of stands expected from a wide range of agri-traders showcasing the latest agricultural machinery and farming technology.
Chairman of the Cheshire County Show Tony Garnett said: “This year’s show will be a true celebration of Cheshire’s agricultural heritage but also a great celebration of the agricultural professionals that continue to make the county such a vibrant farming community.”
Following the great success of the National Dairy Shorthorn Show over the last three years at the Cheshire Show the prestigious competition will once again be returning to the event this year.
The Sainsbury’s Agri-Centre will also once again be at the heart of the show, providing the perfect venue to educate the public about the industry and a focal point for farmers, butchers, cheese makers, other producers and a host of suppliers.
"In recent years the show has become one of the North West’s largest two-day shows and one of the most popular in the UK. Demand for agricultural trade spaces continues to increase every year as we attract more agricultural traders and professionals from all over the country,” said Show Executive Director Nigel Evans.
There will also be a packed programme in the Creamline Dairies Main Ring which will include the grand parade of champions, a display of stunning birds of prey, the Bolddog Ling Motorcycle Team and a Pony Club to mention just a few.
