Last month’s Staffordshire County Show reached record heights with the highest number of entries in sheep and cattle competitions in recent history.

With almost 800 entries to exhibit sheep, almost 300 cattle and increased numbers in horses, dogs and goat entries, organisers said it was one of the most successful shows yet. Around 65,000 visitors attended the two-day event on 29-30 May.

Some 500 people travelled from as far as New Zealand, Norway, Germany, France, Wales and Scotland to enter the sheep shearing competition alone, said Richard Williams, chief executive of the Staffordshire and Birmingham Agricultural Society.

“Cattle numbers have been declining for the last few years due to things like TB and the time it takes to transport and show them – but this year we have increased from about 220 to 270. It is a significant increase and we’re really pleased.”
