Skelton Show 2017



Posted: July 3rd, 2017

During the summer season you will often find us out and about at various agricultural shows with our trade stand full of information; a warm welcome, a chair, a cuppa and of course Finlay (our resident calf) who follows us everywhere we go!

The 2017 Skelton Show took place on Saturday 1 July and was yet again a great day out catering for all the family.  Following a week of rain, our hopes were high for bright blue skies and thankfully we were not disappointed as the sunshine prevailed and the show enjoyed a sun filled day!

Our trade stand took pride of place next to the main ring with representatives from all arms of the David Allen Group in attendance to enjoy all of the show’s events and welcome everyone on to our stand to enjoy homemade cake, refreshments and a chat.

We were proud to sponsor the classes: Texel Ram Lamb, Beltex Gimmer Shearling and British Blue Unserved Heifer and our Agricultural Partner, Michael Peile had the pleasure of presenting the rosettes to the winners of each class.

Our cow Daisy enjoyed walking around the show field, entertaining children and handing out balloons.  While our “love a selfie” competition, with the chance to win a Samsumg Galaxy tablet, kept passers-by entertained as they took a selfie with our cut out cow.

We would like to thank everyone that came along to see us and congratulate the show organisers for putting on such a great event.

We are now busy preparing for the Cockermouth Show which will take place on Saturday 29 July.  Once again we look forward to seeing you there, come along and say hello – we will be pleased to catch up with you.
