The Scottish National Simmental Cattle Show is set to take place at this year’s Turriff Show in August.
The event on August 5-6 will also play host to a range of new attractions including a gin and prosecco bar, pageant parade and a showjumping relay.
Show president, John Sleigh, said: “The show is not just for farmers and we want to accommodate every member of the public that walks through the gates, whether their interests lie with cattle, horticulture, food and drink or they are just wanting to come along for a fun-filled family day out.
“Agrii will feature as main sponsors for the show and we are extremely grateful for their support and indeed all other sponsors involved.”
A number of judges have already been announced for the event including Ronald Black from Newton of Collessie Farm, Fife, for the prestigious champion of champions award.
Other judges include Archie MacGregor from Allanfauld, Kilsyth, for the overall cattle interbreed championship, and David Brown from United Auctions in Stirling is set to judge the beef groups, pairs and young bull interbreed.
The overall sheep interbreed championship will be judged by Allan Wight from Crawford, Biggar.
Mr Sleigh said: “We are very lucky to have some great prize money available at our show and we strongly encourage people to come along and get involved.
“Whether you are a regular livestock exhibitor or a first-time exhibitor in the industrial tent, Turriff Show will be delighted to accommodate you.”
Meanwhile, a new development committee has been formed for the show.
It follows the show’s organisers being awarded funding from the Tesco Bags for Help appeal and Aberdeenshire Council to help it develop the two-day event.
