Livestock to impress at improved English Winter Fair

A new cattle class and a fresh format for the National Pedigree Calf Show have been announced for the 2019 English Winter Fair.

Hundreds of entries and thousands of visitors will be welcomed to the Staffordshire County Showground on 16-17 November to see the country’s leading livestock farmers, butchers and food producers in action.

A diverse Christmas fair and farm machinery displays will be open for the weekend before a live auction closes the show on Sunday afternoon. The Duke of Norfolk Competition is a new class for 2019 from the Royal Smithfield Club.

Open to pure-bred steers or heifers entered into the English Winter Fair pedigree classes or National Pedigree Calf Show, each Breed Society represented at the fair will select a set of three cattle to be judged.

“We are delighted to include this prestigious new class from the Royal Smithfield Club in the English Winter Fair and expect the quality of entries to be extremely high,” said Richard Williams, CEO of the Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society, which organises the event.

The National Pedigree Calf Show has a new format for 2019.

Now taking place on Saturday only, calf exhibitors will be able to minimise their time away from the farm by arriving on Friday evening before 10pm or on Saturday morning between 6am and 8am and leaving from 4pm on Saturday if they want to.

The judges will pour over classes for British Blue, Simmental, Charolais, Limousin and any other native/continental breed sponsored by Tithebarn.
