31st Autumn Rare Breed Show & Sale

Saturday 7th October 2017

Rare Breed Autumn Show and Sale 2017

This year we changed the format to a one day show and sale on the Saturday with the Shetland and Hebridean Sheep Society’s holding their own shows on the Friday. Their 2 champion sheep then went forward on Saturday to the Primitive Championship and the Interbreed Champion.

Saturday proved to be a hectic time to get all the sheep penned and the judging complete before the 11:00am start time. In the end all the judging of cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry were finished on time.

This year we saw the biggest crowds at the Auction Centre we have seen for many years. Prices in general were very good for the best stock in every section and the majority of the stock entered was sold.

This year the Archbishop of York The Most Reverend & Right Honourable Dr. John Sentamu, paid us a visit as part of his weekend of mission in the Derwent deanery. He was accompanied by the Bishop of Selby, the Rt Rev Dr John Thomson, and other senior clergy from the Diocese of York. They went around the show and meeting both exhibitors and visitors plus having a go at selling which was followed by lunch in the café.
