Deadline extended for Scottish Agricultural Show

The deadline has been extended to 10pm on Sunday June 21.
The deadline has been extended to 10pm on Sunday June 21.

Farmers and horse enthusiasts have been given extra time to enter next month’s online Scottish Agricultural Show.

The deadline to enter the virtual show, which takes place on July 3-4, has been extended to 10pm on Sunday, June 21, and the entry process is simple.

The show, sponsored by EQ Accountants and hosted by The Press And Journal and The Courier in partnership with the Royal Highland Show, aims to fill the void left by the cancellation of summer agricultural shows due to the Covid-19 crisis.

It features competitions for beef and dairy cattle, goats, horses, poultry, sheep and young handlers.

To enter any of the livestock or horse classes, all you need are some details about your entry, one photo of the animal looking its best and a short video of it walking.

Up and coming stocksmen and women can show off their skills in the young handlers contest – all we need is details of who they are, a picture of them with their animal and a short video of them parading it.

All entries will then be assessed virtually by a host of well-respected judges from across Scotland.

The dairy cattle judge is Fife farmer Adam Lawson, while the beef cattle judges are Glenlivet farmer Michael Durno, Arbroath farmer Audrey Anderson, and well-known Highland cattle breeder Donald MacNaughton.

The sheep section will be judged by Turriff Texel breeder Robbie Wilson and Forfar-based Suffolk breeder Gordon Mackie.

Goats will be assessed by Stonehaven breeder Agnes Aitken, while poultry will be judged by Robert Chapman from Farmlay Eggs based near Strichen, Fraserburgh.

The horse section judges are Virginia Osborne-Antolovi from Kirriemuir and James Munro from Wick.

The show costs £5 per animal to enter and exhibitors are asked to donate the entry fee to the Royal Highland Education Trust charity.

Other features of the show include trade stands, a food and drink section and bakery, dog and vintage farm machinery competitions.
