The Royal Cheshire County Show ordinarily plays host to hundreds of livestock classes, including cattle, sheep, goats and pigs, as they all compete for the many coveted trophies available.
Unfortunately we will be unable to hold as many competition classes as usual this year due to the current Covid-19 restrictions. However there will be plenty of opportunity for visitors to meet a wide range of cattle breeds from the largest native breed Orange Elephants or Giant Cows from South Devon to the diminutive Dexter cattle, the smallest native breed in the UK. And of course, everything inbetween! It really is worth seeking the cattle section out, just to see the huge variety of breeds.
The sheep section is popular as visitors always seem to admire the many varieties of the breeds and the high standard to which they are prepared for the show.
Pigs always draw a crowd as people do not often have the opportunity to get close to these enigmatic animals. From the traditional Gloucestershire Old spots to the modern day commercial pigs. The pig section is definitely a must see during your visit.
The Royal Cheshire County Show is proud to boast as having one of the largest Dairy Goat sections in the country, so be sure to pop in and see them as these naturally inquisitive animals will certainly be pleased to see you!
From Dairy goats you must pay a visit to see the Pygmy Goats next door, an exact and charming replica of Dairy Goats only in miniature.
