Bringing together the best of pedigree and commercial showing classes, the event is now in its ninth year, with last year’s show attracting 12,000 people.

Held at Borderway Mart, Carlisle, on Friday, October 30, the event will showcase 800 livestock entries in the sheep and cattle classes, six breed society shows, and more than 165 trade and society stands.

David Pritchard, Harrison and Hetherington operations director, says: “The show offers opportunities to meet and talk things over, as well to come together and find out about key developments in the livestock industry.

“It has gained a reputation as being a leading livestock showcase and once again we are delighted we have both a record number of livestock entries and trade stands.

“The calibre of stock entered is from some of the finest herds and flocks in the country, all competing for our prestigious awards.”

At the heart of the event are the sheep and cattle classes, with a total prize fund of £13,000.

The 26 classes in the national suckled calf and primestock show, include baby beef, continental and native breed cattle classes.

The national prime sheep show features 20 classes for continental and traditional sheep, together with its own supreme champion award.

The climax of the day is the parade of champions in the Borderway exhibition centre, followed by the announcement of the overall champion animal.

Winner

The owner of the overall winner will receive £500 and the Robert Scott Memorial Perpetual Challenge trophy.

The Young Farmer classes are always one of the highlights and this year there are classes for steers and pairs of lambs – both of any breed and any weight.

Visitors can also keep up-to-date with new developments in genetics, handling, nutrition, and animal management systems.
