Well, the winter show circuit starts here I guess. Having spent much of today at the Great Yorkshiren Showground ahead of tomorrow’s Countryside Live event I’m delighted to report it looks like it should be a cracking weekend.

Cattle and sheep have been pouring into the showground all day and after a quick tour of the stalls it’s fair to say there’s a good offering of both to test the judges tomorrow and Sunday.

For our part Farmers Weekly/Taking Stock is sponsoring the sheep section of the event and will be offering live reporting of both cattle and sheep results over the two days. However, tempted as I am there will be disappointment for a few readers – I’m not going to be covering the pigeon classes I’m afraid!!

So, come back tomorrow to find out who’s been taking the red tickets in Harrogate and don’t forget to comment to, its good to know you’re out there.
