One of the most popular attractions of recent years returns to Todmorden Agricultural Show in June.
Heavily in demand, Todmorden Agricultural Society have re-booked the show, which first appeared there around three years ago, for a return appearance at Centre Vale Park on Saturday, June 21.
Show general secretary Rob Goldthorpe said: “It’s a fun and educational live show of sheep breeds and shearing. for all ages. It is highly entertaining but educational and is set on the back of a 40’ stage trailer where the sheep are introduced on to the stage,” said Rob, while New Zealander Richard Savoury, who owns and operates the show from his Norfolk farm says: “It’s a bit like Miss World in sheep!”
The sheep, including Nobby the Norfolk horn and Susie the Southdown are clapped onto the stage to stand on their podiums for the 30 minute show, which includes a well-commentated shearing demonstration showing how wool gets from the sheep’s back to a jumper. The sheep also break into a dance.
