STRANRAER AGRICULTURAL SHOW

STRANRAER Agricultural Show continues to grow and maintain its position as the premier one-day show for dairy livestock in South-West Scotland.

This year's show in London Road Playing Fields yesterday (Wednesday) saw entries rise. Last year the show bucked the trend of many shows with an increase over the last show in 2000 and has again increased livestock entries which are moving towards the 1000 mark - an achievement due in no small part to the hard-working committee.

John Kinnaird, president of the National Farmers' Union Scotland, was scheduled to attend this year's event, making himself available to talk to farmers.

Holstein section entries are at the 135 level and both Ayrshire and Jersey sections increased their numbers this year.

The sheep section was also strong with almost 400 entries covering all
breeds, Blackface, Suffolk, Border Leicester, Bluefaced Leicester, Scotch Mule, Charollais, Texel and the new Beltex section.
