Class entries this year are good. In the haltered cattle section exhibitors will
compete for the £1000 championship prize, kindly sponsored once again by
Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners and Frome Vale, providers of fallen stock services. The young farmer and novice class looks particularly strong with seven entries.
All the unhaltered cattle classes, when cattle are shown in their pens, are sponsored by the Bridgwater Agricultural Society. Thirty three cattle are entered across six classes. In addition to the £1050 offered as prize money by the Bridgwater Agricultural Society, they will present glass decanters to the exhibitors of the highest placed steer and heifer bred and fed within twenty miles of the market. Forty trios of lambs will compete for the championship award of £250 kindly sponsored by Clarke Willmott solicitors.
Further classes for Lamb carcasses, pigs, sausages and Christmas poultry make up
A total of £7880 prize money has been offered by local businesses and competition will be keen. Show Secretary Adam Hayes of Greenslade Taylor Hunt is most grateful to all sponsors of the show this year. “Without sponsors kind and generous support we would not be able to attract such good entries. This year we are the penultimate show in the West Country and are looking to celebrate the quality of stock produced in the region”.
