Well I’m here in Peterborough ready for the East of England Winter Stock Festival. This is the first year for the event and I have to say I’m incredibly impressed. The cattle numbers in the commercial classes are very strong and they have pulled in entries from as far a field as Wales, Yorkshire, Somerset and Kent.
Pedigree numbers are also good, so I think we’re in for a good day!
Classes are now underway with Hugh Dunlop in charge of the commercials and James Playfair Hannay in action shortly on the Angus and Shorthorns.
