The Livestock have always been an integral part of Ashbourne Show and the committee are very proud of the ongoing support from our local and ‘not so local’ exhibitors.
Sheep were first introduced in 1957, our entry numbers have climbed steadily particularly in recent years with many more rare and native breeds being kept and who are regular visitors to the show. We now have 45 Classes which offer a wide selection of breed choices which all make an attractive addition to the Show.
All Livestock sections of the show have Young Handler classes.
Visit the displays from local branches of the WI, Ashbourne Vintage Tractor Club, Young Farmers and Ashbourne Camera Clubs, pop in at the Goat tent or enter the competitions in the Handicraft and Horticulture marquee.
