Countryside Live at Harrogate, Yorkshire is a great family day out celebrating the countryside. The event also has very competitive primestock classes. For the first time they are putting on pedigree calf classes this year and there are specific classes for Longhorn bulls and Longhorn heifers, to be judged by Society member and judge Graham Towers.
Whilst the show is a two day event, the calf show is on Sunday only so they only need be there for one day.
Closing date for both primestock and calves is Tuesday 17 September
