Organisers of the Turriff Show have said in a statement that the difficult decision has been made to cancel the poultry classes at the 2022 Turriff Show "due to the ongoing government restrictions in place to prevent the spread of Bird Flu."

There will still be Egg Classes and a new Schedule for these will be sent out to all Poultry Exhibitors either by post or email very soon and will also be available to download from the website - https://www.turriffshow.org/show-schedules/

It was explained that organisers will be in touch with Exhibitors who have already sent in their entries for the poultry classes in due course.

Pigeon classes and Bird of Prey demonstrations are not affected by the current restrictions and will still go ahead as planned.

Entries for all Livestock Sections close this Saturday, June 25.
