New classes have been added to a line-up of what is sure to be a top show of livestock at this year’s Agri-Expo.
Two new classes are set to join the line-up at this year’s Borderway Agri-Expo, which will be held on Friday, November 2, at Borderway Mart, Carlisle.
For the first time, Blue Texels will be represented with a class to award the best pair of lambs, alongside a new class for a pair of Herdwick cross lambs.
About 1,000-head of quality cattle and sheep will be on show, with judges having travelled from Ireland, Scotland and England for the annual event.
Presence from national breed societies is also set to be strong and will see several host their breed society shows at the event, alongside the existing line-up of cattle classes, baby beef and sheep classes taking place.
Alongside the show, the event also provides a platform for equipment, information and the latest technology, and visitors can see what is on offer from some 140 trade stands exhibiting.
Harrison and Hetherington’s joint managing director and event organiser, David Pritchard, says: “This year, more than ever, Borderway Agri-Expo offers the farming community a valuable meeting point to remind ourselves and our customers about the fantastic successes of our industry and what we can offer global markets in the future.
“It gives us the opportunity to encourage younger members of our industry, who are full of optimism and energy, and will take our products into new post-Brexit era.
“The event has become a unique event for the agricultural industry to come together to celebrate its achievements, meet with industry representatives to discuss current issues and gain knowledge and information about new innovations and technologies within livestock management.”
