Great Yorkshire Show 2016
Categories: None | Tags: None
This year was our second at The Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate and once again we sponsored the screen in the main arena. Our Suregrow Fertiliser advert played on the screen and our (huge!) Suregrow banner was on show for all to see. Organised by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS), the 158th show was held on 12 - 14 July.
The competitive classes were at the heart of the event attracting around 13,000 entries, ranging from prize-winning bulls to poultry to international show jumpers. There was a large live robotic milking exhibition as well as fashion shows, game cookery demonstrations and a live forging competition which was held throughout the three days, a new addition for 2016.
On the final day of the show was the Cock O'The North Championship, where Laura Renwick, aboard Heliodor Hybris, hailed victory to bag the £8,000 prize on only her second ever outing to the Great Yorkshire Show. Essex-based Chloe Winchester produced the only other triple-clear to come second on Avoca Valkyrie while Shipley’s seven-time winner Robert Smith was third on Ilton.
We are proud to sponsor such a fantastic event and look forward to 2017!
