Sadly, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society – organisers of Countryside Live – have today announced their decision to cancel all beef and sheep classes at the event due to the recent outbreaks of foot and mouth disease in Surrey. However, the Show will definitely still go ahead.
Countryside Live takes place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of October at the Great Yorkshire Showground and has rapidly grown into an important autumn agricultural event. Now in its fifth year, Countryside Live aims to bring together the best of the countryside to families and children in the comfort of an exhibition centre.
