Agricultural event returns to county

ONE of the UK’s leading agricultural events is returning to Cumbria this week.


The annual Borderway Agri-Expo is taking place in Rosehill, Carlisle, on Friday and farmers from across the country are expected to attend.

The show, which is described by organisers as the leading livestock event in the North, has attracted a record number of entries this year.

More than 800 livestock entries have been received and around 10,000 people are expected to attend the event, which is now in its sixth year.

Prominent Cumbrian farmer Brian Ridsdale will be judging the mule lamb class at the show.

The event will also be raising money for charity.

Last year it managed to raise £3,600 and organisers are hoping to repeat the achievement, with money going to Macmillan Nurses this year.

David Pritchard, operations director of show organisers Harrison and Hetherington, said: “A number of years ago now we saw a distinct opening for an event like this in the North of England.

“We are bringing together the very best in the business and they are showing us just how it is done.

“It is an opportunity to bring together breed societies and the trade stands that demonstrate to us the latest developments in science and technologies that will all contribute to improving the agricultural industry here in the UK.”
