Dairy Show to go ahead without cattle classes

Organisers of the Dairy Show, held at the Bath and West showground, Somerset, have said the event will go ahead on October 7 but there will be no livestock classes held this year.

It has been decided that it will be impossible for cattle classes to take place under current social distancing measures.

 

Space usually allocated to the cattle will be used to provide a bigger trade stand area, which will allow for social distancing to take place.

 

Zoe Purcell, of the Royal Bath and West of England Society who organise the event, said there will be measures introduced to ensure the safety of visitors and trade stand exhibitors.

 

She said: “All tickets will need to be purchased online and not on the gate. Tickets will be available for purchase as late as the day itself and e-tickets will then be scanned at entry.”

 

She added there would be an increase in hand sanitiser and washing facilities and there was a possibility that masks be worn by people at the event. There may also be a one-way system around the event, although this would be discussed at a later date and in line with the latest guidelines.

 

The British Cheese awards, which usually take place at the Bath and West show, will now take place at the Dairy Show.
