A strong line-up of livestock and horse entries is set to wow the crowds at next weekend’s Nairn Show.

The show takes place on Saturday, August 1, at Kinnudie Farm, Auldearn, which lies around one mile east of Nairn.

“Livestock entries for this year’s show are on a par with previous years. Highland, Aberdeen-Angus and Simmental entries are up and there is a good entry in the cross cattle section,” said show secretary Jean Hay.

“Blackfaced sheep entries are back this year but Suffolk, Texel and Cheviot are up. We have introduced a new Any Other Breed section in the sheep lines this year, with entries from Zwartble, Herdwick and Valais Blacknose.

“There is also a good entry across the board in the horse sections with Highland pony entries slightly increased from last year.”

The most coveted prize of the day – the show champion of champions – will be judged in the afternoon following the completion of all other classes.

Last year’s winner was Clydesdale yeld mare Galcantray Angel from David Walker and Beverley Brown’s Galcantray stud at Cawdor.

In addition to the stock on show, there will be a display of vintage tractors and machinery, and entertainment from the Drakes of Hazard and the Nairn and District Pipe Band.

Car parking at this year’s show, now in its 217th year, is free this year and entry prices are frozen at £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and secondary school children, £1 for primary school children and free for those of pre-school age.
