The host farmers, the Stronach family, are preparing some excellent classes of stock for the guests to judge.

Refreshments, sponsored by Norvite, will be on offer.

Steaks provided by ABP are going to be served after the stock judging closes,.

Entry £5 (under 12’s free). Proceeds to RSABI and Macmillan Cancer on the evening.

Prize giving and presentations will be made by Joe’s family (Mirren, Murdo, Tracy, Fraser, Sam, Joe, Amy and Charle).
