Cockermouth Show 2017

On Saturday 29 July we were pleased to attend the annual Cockermouth Show with our stand full of information.  Visitors were offered a warm welcome, on what turned out to be a rather rainy morning, thankfully the sun came out in the afternoon.  A cuppa and our homemade cakes turned out to be just what everyone needed.  Our resident calf Finley was also in attendance, he follows us everywhere we go!

After the week’s unpredictable weather we were hoping for a sunnier day, but thankfully the rain didn’t dampen spirits and we all had a fantastic time.  The show had a great turn out and we were able to catch up with clients, contacts and friends old and new who visited us on our stand to enjoy a chat, the refreshments, information and advice while soaking up the show’s fantastic atmosphere.


David Allen were proud to sponsor the classes Texel ram lamb and British Blue unserved heifer all of which showcased some magnificent animals.

For our annual competition, we again asked passers-by to have their photo taken with our cut out cow which they posted onto the David Allen Facebook page using #DavidAllen.  We will be announcing the winner of the competition after our final show at Dalston.  The ‘goodie packed’ David Allen hamper will be worth the wait with the lucky winner receiving a Samsung Galaxy tablet.


Our 2016/2017 Charity of the Year, the Great North Air Ambulance were also in attendance and we took the opportunity to pop along and catch up with the team, we hope they all had a great time.


I would like to thank everyone who came along to help and for making it a very enjoyable day for all.  Preparations are already in full swing for our last show of the season, Dalston show, which takes place on Saturday 12 August 2017.  Come along and say hello, we will be pleased to see you there.
