Royal Smithfield Club National Festival Of Meat Competitions

The Yorkshire Agricultural Society has invited the Royal Smithfield Club to hold a National Festival of Meat Beef Ribs Competition at this year's Countryside Live Food and Farming Fair at Harrogate on 28th and 29th October.


The competition will involve the display of a primal cut of four ribs with the judge looking for the very best eating quality. It is hoped that a tasting panel will have the opportunity of sampling both the supreme and reserve champions towards the end of the event.

The judge, Charles Hill of C.B. Hill Limited, is a well-known butcher from Thornton le Dale, Pickering. He will be at the display cabinets for some of the show to discuss the points that influenced his decisions, and will also be happy to talk with the general public about the right cuts of meat for the best eating quality.

In addition the Club, in partnership with the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, are also mounting again this year the Saddle of Lamb Competition for sheep producers across the region. The judge, Brian Glaves, whose retail and catering butchery business is at Brompton by Sawdon, Scarborough, is a great believer in only selecting meat that will eat really well.

Full details about entering these competitions can be obtained by phoning the Royal Smithfield Club on 01225 837904

The Beef Ribs competitions will also be held at:
The Scottish Winter Fair, Ingliston - 22nd November
The Welsh Winter Fair, Builth Wells - 27th and 28th November
The Royal Smithfield Christmas Fair, Shepton Mallet - 1st and 2nd December
