In a closely fought contest, the show took the top honours after taking into account the views of three leading judges and the online vote at www.farmersguardian.com.


The competition, which attracted 53 entries, saw more than 2,200 people vote online.


The three judges who scrutinised the shortlisted shows were: Ray Jones, former chief executive of the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society for Scotland and chairman of Scotland Food and Drink; Dai Jones (Llanilar), Welsh farmer and TV presenter; and Charles Horrell, leading cattle and sheep exhibitor and East of England Show chief cattle steward.


Livestock entry Mid-Devon Show took top honours because of its strong livestock entry, the fact it played a strong part in the local community and had the farming ‘X-Factor’, making the judges feel good about farming.


Other finalists all commen-ded by the judges were: Alysham, Norfolk; Fishguard, Pembrokeshire; Great Eccleston, Lancashire; Hope Show, Derbyshire; Hodder Valley, Lancashire and Melplash, Dorset.


Farmers Guardian editor Emma Penny said: “The competition has been a great success. It is great to see so many people getting involved and such enthusiasm bodes well for the future of these important rural events.”

Show details

Mid-Devon Show, which is held on Saturday, July 28, this year, wins a media partnership with Farmers Guardian, including a show preview and report, and coverage on TV show Farming Sunday.
