Show ‘prep’ well in hand

PREPARATIONS are already well in hand for this June’s Todmorden Agricultural Show, which will be held at Centre Vale Park, Todmorden.

The Sunday before this year’s show, which is on Saturday, June 18, Calderdale Young Farmers hold their annual stock judging at Pextenement Farm, Eastwood, where they will test their skills judging Lonk Sheep, Beltex Texel cross lambs, Friesian dairy cows and large white pigs, said sheep section secretary Margaret Wood.

They will also be on the show field on show day with lots of fun activities. Due to increasing popularity, especially in the Texel classes, and an excellent standard of entries, the sheep section has more prize money and prizes on offer, with increasing number of both exhibitors and spectators expected, she said.
