The English Winter Fair has been cancelled for 2020
The Royal Smithfield Club has agreed that the Duke of Norfolk Competition will be hosted by the English Winter Fair again this year. Breed societies will be invited to put forward a purebred Team of Three to represent their breed. The team can come from either the English Winter Fair pedigree classes or the National Pedigree Calf Show.
This year the English Winter Fair is on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 November, with the Duke of Norfolk Award being competed for at around 12noon on Sunday.
The National Pedigree Calf Show will remain a one day event; exhibitors can arrive either on Friday 20 or early on Saturday 21, and will be able to leave around 4pm on Saturday.
The Society offers £1000 to the Supreme Champion if a purebred Longhorn, £500 if it is a halfbred Longhorn, £25 to any first prize winner if out or and/or by a purebred Longhorn, £20 for all purebred entries forward in both the live and carcase competitions.
The Society had a strong turnout of Longhorns at the English Winter Fair last year and would like to consolidate that presence by having more cattle forward this year as well as having a presence with a small stand. Please consider entering your prime cattle and your calves for this excellent event. Entry forms will be available soon and more information can be found on the English Winter Fair website.
