The show’s Lynn Buchan said: “We have seen our sheep entries increasing year on year, with 2013 breaking all previous records.

“This year, we have introduced the two new categories - the young handler competition and the black sheep competition: this should provide some interesting afternoon entertainment.

“Our show promises to be a great day out, whether you are a first time exhibitor, returning winner or simply coming along to enjoy the exhibits and afternoon entertainment. The day will end with an after-show BBQ starting at 5pm.”
