Despite wet weather a successful show was held at Park Farm on Saturday, 6th August 2011 with very encouraging support from both town and country dwellers. The Society celebrated the 50th show since the amalgamation of Dumfries and Lockerbie Societies with an exhibition of photographs and reports from past shows and displays of vintage machinery from the 1960s.
There were a large number of entries in all livestock sections and the Society was pleased to host the 25th Anniversary of the Scotch Mule Association. Trade stands including the Craft Tent and Food Festival were very well supported.
This year the Show was held on Saturday 3rd August. We hosted the Scottish National Ryeland Show and there were classes for Shetland Sheep.
For our results please see the results section of the page.
Entertainment included Jez Avery, the return of The Sheep Show, Daffy Dill, a vintage machinery display, face painting, the band Disfunctional and Dumfries & Stewartry Foxhounds.
