EDUCATION is the name of the game at this year’s Kenilworth Agricultural Show.
A special educational area including displays and interactive demonstrations will feature at the show, located opposite Stoneleigh Park on June 10.
And new for this year will be a display by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, with pens of pigs, sheep, Exmoor ponies and a Gloucester cow. Information will demonstrate why maintaining these rare breeds is important to life-stock farming.
There will also be more hands on activities include sheep shearing, wood carving, stone dressing, corn dolly making and a children’s milking competition.
Richard Fonge, leader of the KADAS educational sub-committee, said: “We’re delighted that we will be having the educational area again for this year’s Kenilworth Show.
“We have a fantastic schedule of exhibitors this year – acquisition of knowledge is really important, so if we inspire one or two people to enter the farming industry that’s a real bonus.
“This is an industry where there are so many different opportunities, it’s not just farmers anymore, we hope that the displays we will be putting on will help visitors explore all aspects of farming and agriculture.”
