With breed shows & sales being held on behalf of The Devon Cattle Breeders Society, The South West Blonde Cattle Club, The Mid West Longhorn Breeders, West Country Suffolk Sheep Association, Shetland Sheep Society, Hampshire Down Sheep Breeders Association and the Centurion Poll Dorset Sheep Breeders Group, to name a selection.

We are proud to host The South West Region Rare Breeds Survival Trust Show & Sale of Sheep, Goats, Pigs and Poultry, scheduled for Thursday 25th September 2014, to include the National Show & Sale of Shetland Sheep. This event will run alongside the Devon Cattle Breeders' Autumn Show and Sale.
Our already well established South West Multi Breed Pedigree Shows & Sales will continue this year with a combined Spring Cattle Sale and separate Native and Continental days in the Autumn. These sales are run alongside our monthly Catalogued Sales of Suckler Cows. Our Multi Breed Pedigree Sheep Sale is to be held on Thursday 4th September 2014, in conjunction with the Autumn Sale of Breeding Ewes.
An exciting new event for 2014 is the South West Pedigree Beef Calf Show on Friday 17th October. This event will see classes being held for individual breeds, both Continental and Native, which will culminate in an overall Interbreed Championship. All breeds are encouraged to participate, with various age classes.
Collective pedigree dairy sales are held throughout the year at the Winter Warmer, Spring Fever, May Collective, Top 10% & Seasonality, Autumn Gold and Christmas Cracker sales. Numerous dispersal sales are held with stock from across the length and breadth of the country, not just the South West. In addition the South Western Counties Shorthorn Breeders Association hold an annual Show & Sale of Dairy Shorthorn cattle in October.
