Despite the show being cancelled after the first day due to the weather, the cattle show classes did take place, albeit in rather wet, muddy judging rings! The interbreed championships took place without a public audience on the second day of the show.

Salers had 43 entries for this show, the third largest entry of continental breeds. Judge, Donald Gilder, Cheltenham, was pleased with the animals forward and commented on the quality of the heifers coming through ready to do their job. This was emphasised by the commentary of the Salers breed – a breed slowly making pace in the industry, becoming more and more popular on their own merits of a great suckler breed, easy calvers and good maternal traits all round.
