Heart 

As always, agriculture will be at the heart of the show, with more than 8,000 head of livestock, including record sheep entries, competing for some of the most prestigious championships in the country.

For the first time, this year’s trade exhibitors are being given the opportunity to nominate a new product for The White Rose What’s Next Award which will be given to an innovative piece of equipment in farming.

Judging the award entries will be Alastair Philip, head of agriculture at Askham Bryan College, York; John Henderson, landowner and member of Yorkshire Agricultural Society’s grants and education committee; and farmer and society council member John Penty.

There will be equine and showjumping classes each day with one of the highlights being the Shetland Grand National which will take place at 3pm each day in the main ring.

Highlights

With 1,200 trade stands covering everything from conservation and education, to machinery and business practices, plus a seminar on black-grass, the event offers something for everyone.
