Our summer season at the agricultural shows got underway with Skelton Show, which took place on Saturday 7 July, as always, we were proud to support the event. Our trade stand took pride of place next to the main ring with representatives across the David Allen team in attendance to offer a warm welcome and refreshments. Of course Finley, our mascot calf joined us, he follows us everywhere we go.
With the heatwave Cumbria had been enjoying all week everyone had their fingers crossed that the glorious weather would hold out for the weekend, and we were not disappointed. The show had a fantastic turn out and we were all able to catch up with a number of our existing clients and meet some new faces too, and all while enjoying a fantastic view of the main ring from our marquee.
It is safe to say that everyone’s attention was on the quarter final match between England and Sweden, which was being played in the packed hospitality tent just across from our stand. Thankfully the uproars for each of England’s goals kept us updated, while we continued to look after our guests on our stand.
Now back to the show proceedings, we were proud to sponsor the classes: Texel Ram Lamb, Beltex Gimmer Shearling, and British Blue Unserved Heifer, all of which showcased some magnificent animals.
Our cow Daisy enjoyed walking around the show field, entertaining children and taking photos. Passers-by to our stand were kept entertained as they took a selfie with our cut out cow. We love any photo opportunity here at David Allen.
We’re already looking forward to our next agricultural show outings which will be on Saturday 4 August at both Cockermouth Show and Dumfries Show, so once again please come along to see us and say ‘hello’, it would be great to catch up with you.
