The Dumfries Show took place at Park Farm, Dumfries on Saturday 4 August 2018. A busy day for #TeamDA, as not only was it our first appearance with a trade stand at Dumfries but we also had a team manning our stand at Cockermouth Show.
The Dumfries set-up team spent Friday getting the stand ready, with tea and coffee very kindly supplied by Lloyd Jaguar Land Rover. On hand to help with our fencing needs were DWS Fencing and GLS Fencing. A huge thank you to everyone who assisted, we couldn’t have done it without you.
Although we were showered with rain during the set-up we were rewarded by dry weather and sunshine on show day. The team met at the stand bright and early with a breakfast box supplied by The Waterfront Café in Dumfries, however there was no time to spare as guests and clients quickly ascended the stand to join us for refreshments. A very welcomed addition to our stand throughout the day were Heather Wildman from Saviour Associates Ltd and Alec Ross from Biocell Agri Limited, both locals who could show us the ropes and introduce us to many Dumfries Show regulars.
David Allen were very proud to sponsor the Interbreed Sheep Champion of Champions as well as the Aberdeen Angus Bull. I had an opportunity to speak with Jimmy Warnock of Sandilands Farm in Lanark for an interview to express our thanks for the support and that we were proud to be sponsors.
Overall our first Dumfries Show went down a treat, it was fantastic to catch up with fellow businesses and clients. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone involved with the organisation of this year’s show, we thoroughly enjoyed it and all our team had a great day. Roll on next year.
With all the excitement of our first Dumfries Show, I can’t forget our team of experts at Cockermouth Show. Everyone had a great day, we enjoyed fantastic weather which brought the crowds, we were proud to sponsor one again the classes Texel ram lamb and British Blue unserved heifer all of which showcased some magnificent animals. Thank you to everyone that joined us at both of our shows and we look now to Dalston Show on Saturday 11 August.
