PEEBLESSHIRE Agricultural Society’s Annual Show will take place on Sunday, August 13, at Nether Horsburgh Farm, Cardrona.

The event attracts farmers and visitors from all over Scotland and further afield.

And it is considered to be an excellent showcase for the impressive local livestock bred in the Borders, as well as offering a wide range of family entertainment.

Judges will select winners in dozens of livestock categories, with the Champion of Champions being awarded the Jimmy Johnston Trophy and the Reserve Champion will take home the Bank of Scotland Trophy.

Led cattle, horses and donkeys will be paraded in the main ring.

In addition, there will be lots of fun for the whole family including: The Sheep Show, BMX Stunt Show, alpaca walks, craft hall, food tent, industrial tent along with children’s activities and funfair.

Homebaking and craft competitions include categories such as best dropped scone, Battenburg cake and various flavours of jam – plus best knitted blanket, animal mask and mocktail in glass.

The highlight for many will be the Dog and Pet Show, which includes a number of categories including the dog or bitch with the waggiest tail.

Participants can enter on the day.

Best exhibit in the Exemption Show will win the Torwood House Trophy.

The champion dog will be put forward to the Champion of Champions.

Best Terrier Dog will win the Ian Wilson Memorial Quaich and the Best Terrier Bitch will receive the Alastriona Quaich.

Some of the exhibits are in tents but the main ring and most of the action takes place outside, whatever the weather.

Organisers advise bringing a jacket and a pair of wellington boots.

Sadly, due to ongoing avian flu restrictions, there will be no poultry section at this year’s Show.

Ticket prices: Adult £12; youth £8; adult concession £8; family entry £30; membership £20; car parking £5.
