Due to new Covid restrictions, we are unable to include the competing element of the South of England Show this year. However, our exhibitors and their livestock are still coming to demonstrate and educate about different breeds, explain how they are looked after, how they prepare the animals for showing, and where the different cuts of meat or other products come from. They’ll also be showcasing the technology involved in rearing and caring for these animals. We’ll even be putting on mock livestock auctions!
Animals on display include:
Come and see different breeds of top pedigree cattle which have won awards at some of the top agricultural shows around the UK. Throughout the 3 days demonstrations will take place on judging techniques, show preparation and more. Plus there will of course be fabulous Cattle Parades in the Cattle Ring.
We’ll have an incredible variety on display throughout the show including our local breed – the Southdown. There will be plenty of experts on hand to answer your questions so you can find out more about the wide range of breeds you’ll see. There’s also the hilarious yet educational Sheep Show that the whole family is sure to love.
From beautiful tiny piglets to enormous sows, don’t miss our dedicated Pig Village. Offering excitement and interest to visitors of all ages, you can meet the animals, watch our exhibitors guide the pigs around the ring, meet all the different breeds and find out about pig keeping from the experts
Our poultry display is organised by Arun Valley Poultry Fanciers Society and gives you the chance to see a wonderful variety of different breeds of fowl and poultry from local breeders.

Sheepdog & Duck Demonstrations
Don’t miss out on this fun sheepdog display which offers a brilliant insight into dog behaviour. You’re sure to be entertained as owners and their sheepdogs show off their duck herding skills. This event takes place in the Cattle Rings with shows taking place twice a day across the three days. When they aren’t showing off their skills, the dogs love to meet people, so why not drop by and say hello and talk to the owners to find out more for yourself.
