Record number of classes for 2017 Winter Stock Festival

11 October 2017

East of England Winter Stock Festival has announced a host of new classes for its 2017 event, including the addition of a pig section for the very first time.

Taking place on a later date of Friday 1 and Saturday 2 December at the East of England Showground, Peterborough, Festival Show Director William Haire says the 2017 festival is set to be the finale of the showing season.

“We’re very excited about the introduction of 25 new pig classes to our existing line up of 120 cattle classes and 38 classes for sheep, and are looking forward to once again, welcoming an excellent showcase of commercial and pedigree livestock.

“Last year, we attracted over 450 entries and following the addition of new classes and some revisions to improve the sheep schedule, we hope to attract exhibitors old and new to the 2017 festival,” says William.

He explains that the changes form part of their objective to extend the events offering to both current livestock producers, as well as the wider industry.

“We’re working hard to develop the festival to cater for the needs of the wider agricultural industry. Alongside new livestock classes, the 2017 festival will feature a dedicated trade stand area, as well as a range of seminars and demonstrations, with some top experts secured to deliver the latest thinking in agriculture,” concludes William.

The deadline for livestock entries closes on 3rd November, with schedules and entry forms available to download online at www.winterstockfestival.co.uk or from the show office.
