This year’s Livestock Event covers all species from pigs and poultry to sheep and cattle.

New demonstrations and debates will feature, as well as some of the regular items.

Farm minister Jim Paice will open the event and highlights will include the National All Breeds Show and New Smithfield workshops.

Forums and seminars will cover the topics feed and forage, farm health planning and animal health.

Farm safety demonstrations will feature safe use of ATVs and the hoof trimming demonstrations are likely to draw a crowd.
