The Show Field, Park Farm, Dumfries, DG2 7LU / First Saturday in August

2014 Dumfries Show


In contrast to the previous year, spring came relatively early and was followed by a good growing summer season, so all boded well for a well-supported show.

Livestock entries were on a par with the previous years.  Cattle and goat sections were well supported with no major changes.  In the sheep section we had a new breed class – Berrichon Du Cher.  The sheep inter-breed section saw a change in judging, in that one judge was appointed as an overall judge rather than all sheep judges being involved in this.  This seemed to meet with approval in general.  In the horse section there was also a new class for retired race horses which met with an excellent entry.

Home and Garden was of its usual high standard.  The Food Festival had multiple stands from local suppliers, although we are still trying to entice new exhibitors and the cheese competition seems to be growing year by year.

However, on the Saturday of the show, we were not so fortunate and consistent rain throughout the day on top of a dry ground meant that conditions for showing livestock were treacherous and a decision had to be made at the last minute to cancel the parade of livestock, although entertainment still went ahead.  The winner of the J M Rome award in 2014 year was Charles Cloy of Harbro and there were 3 recipients of long service medals.

The Show Society is deeply indebted to all livestock exhibitors, trade stand exhibitors and sponsors of the show.  Also to the stewards, attending members and directors, who give up their time freely and willingly to assist with the running of the show.





Dumfries Show wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our sponsors.
