Look out for these fine looking animals when judging starts at 10:00am. 

The Sheep section is an ever growing excellent example of the finest sheep around with 13 different classes from the traditional local Derbyshire Gritstone to the Pure Rare Breeds.

We will see some fine examples of sweat and hard work in the livestock secretary's tent with exhibitors showing off their hay making skills and some beautiful raw fleeces.
You will also get the chance see the wool been woven on a traditional spinning wheel.

Make sure to make a stop to have a look inside the YFC tent - the future generation of farming and most probably Hope Show! 

Cade lambs

The most difficult competition to judge by far! 
The cade lamb class, not to be missed, the handler is judged on their presentation as well as their ability to show their animal. 
There are two age categories 10 - 16 year olds and the Under 10s class.
These are both judged outside the Livestock Secretaries tent around 11:00am.
