Breed society members can expect a warm welcome at next weekend’s English Winter Fair, Stafford, where organisers Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society report strong entries for live competitions.
“We are always delighted with the quality of livestock exhibited and 2011 looks to be another strong turnout,” says Graham Roobottom, show chairman.
Pedigree cattle classes will be presided over by former EWF champion Colin Phillips of Weobley, Herefordshire. Non-pedigree cattle sees Miranda Brown take to the ring and John Peckitt - a time-served member of the EWF committee - will oversee Baby Beef classes.
In the sheep ring Lancashire-based Martin Brown will judge the live classes while Frances Slade MBE will oversee the live pig classes.
“We hope as many breed society members, supporters and family will join us over the weekend with championships climaxing on Sunday morning ahead of the traditional auction of prize-winners shortly after lunch,” says Mr Roobottom.
Entry to the event is £10/adult with accompanied Under 16s and car parking being free of charge.
