Stall booking forms can be returned to the cattle office either by post or by email to by Friday 5th August.

Please also publicise to any potential exhibitors that as in 2019 All exhibitors are required to ensure that every animal entered is BVD Free. They either need to reside in a herd accredited free of BVD by a CHECS approved cattle health scheme or, at any time in its life, have been tested individually on a blood, milk, or tissue sample for evidence of the BVD virus, with a negative result.

It would be wise to book your accommodation as early as possible as hotel rooms usually become limited. For a list of hotels go to  If you quote ‘Cattle Rooms 2021’ to The International Hotel, they will offer their discounted rate.
