Neilston Agricultural Show
Saturday 2nd May 2015
As usual there is a wonderful variety of new things to see this year as well as your old favourites.
Many different breeds of cattle will be on show, ranging from the dairy section which are Ayrshire, Holstein Freisians and Jerseys to the beef cattle, Highlanders and Aberdeen Angus, which are native to Scotland. The continental beef breeds, Simmental, Charolais and Limousins. The sheep classes offer many different breeds also, all different shapes, colours and sizes.
The horse world is also well attended with lots of classes to satisfy every different breed.
Take some time to look at all the different stalls, there could be a bargain there for you! There is an educational dome which has a large range of interesting stands inside, as well as some lovely animals, and as if that's still not enough, why don't you visit the homecraft tent to see the local ladies' talents with baking, flower arranging and many other crafts. You can even bring along your family dog to our dog show which is expertly run by my wife and family.
I would like to thank all the directors and helpers for their hard work throughout the year, and the sponsors and exhibitors who continue to support us.
Finally many thanks go to the Crawford family for the use of their field and the Fulton family for the sheep dog field.
As this is my last year as President, I would like to say it's been a privilege and great honour. I hope you enjoy your day and that you will continue to support Neilston Show for years to come.
