As i forgot to put up the poster i was sent with my entry confirmation, i will mention it on here  :)

I'll be stewarding Friday, so have a free pass, and showing on Saturday so paid for my entries weeks ago.  Hope the weather stays like todcay!  Sunny and warm.

Will be working on Saturday but my friends who farm just along the road from me are going, They were telling me that is is a very good show.
Hugh goes all over the country judging sheep so they know a good show when they see one. Hope the weather stays fine for you and good luck to anyone who has entries.

A fair bit then, good luck I hope you do well. It was at the Fife Show last year that I was introduced to Golden Guernsey goats, so much so that I had to get myself 2 and travel hundreds of miles for them! :goat: :goat:

You are going to be busy Cameron with all that lot to show, and the meringues too.  I am sure you will have a good day at the show, whatever the results.  But good luck with it!!

A friends grandson always enters his poultry in the local agricultural shows, and does well.  I have offered my two Pekin boys, for him to show this year.  I have enough on showing the ponies.

Did you win anything, Cameron? If we'd had badges I would have said "Hello"...

I must say that every time I am shocked that in these temperatures so many birds don't get a drink, only some keepers seem to care enough at all!!! so many were already suffering at 11 o'clock,I could just not do that to my birds! :&>
I hope I don't miss the deadline for the home skills entries next time, though - when was it?? Must be more organized  ;D

I got a first, a second and two thirds with my hens, and a second with my tinted eggs  :D  overall a good day.

The weather was far to warm, ad i was glad my birds had water, they were in the minority though, if i had know it was going to be so warm i would not have entered.

i think the deadline was late April

It was far too warm inside the poultry tent for me, so it must've been torture for the birds.
