June 27, 2017 National Charolais Show relocates to the Great Yorkshire
Charolais will be showcasing the cream of the crop when it stages its first ever National Charolais Show at the Great Yorkshire on Tuesday 11 July. A record number of 72 entries will be travelling to Harrogate from as far afield as Cornwall to County Down, as well as a contingent from Yorkshire and the north.
“Searching for a new venue, we are thrilled and honoured that the Yorkshire Agriculture Society has provided us with the opportunity to bring our National Charolais Show to the Great Yorkshire, one of the most renowned events on the show calendar,” says British Charolais Cattle Society chief executive, Peter Phythian, “The event has a great track record, it continues to retain farming at the heart of its activities and we are pleased to have a slice of the action.”
“The National Charolais Show has attracted 72 entries, a record number to the Great Yorkshire, and we are looking forward to showcasing that line up to a ringside of farmers – the event is a great show for meeting fellow farmers – from beef finishers from the region to Scottish farming families holidaying at the event. We are also pleased to introduce Charolais to a wider audience of consumers, explaining to them how their beef is produced and how it all starts with Charolais, one of the UK’s most popular terminal sires.”
