Ayrshire Agricultural Association AGMNovember 15, 2013
“The Annual General Meeting of The Ayrshire Agricultural Association was held on Tuesday 12th November 2013 where a large turnout of members was present and the following decision was made regarding the 2014 show.
The management committee has looked at various options over the last few months and the following was agreed at the AGM.
The format of Ayr County Show will change to a one day event, the date being Saturday 10th May 2014. The venue remains The Racecourse, Ayr. The only exception will be Working Hunters classes held on the Friday afternoon.
This has not been an easy decision as nobody likes change but the future of Ayr County Show is important and circumstances have to be faced.
Most Livestock exhibitors and many Trade exhibitors expressed a preference for a one day event and attendances on the Friday over the past couple of years have been disappointing. Therefore, change has become inevitable.
Judging of all sections will begin earlier on show day in an increased number of rings giving more for spectators to see. The full array of Dairy and Beef Cattle, Sheep, Clydesdale Horses, Poultry, Young Farmers events, Truck Ayr Lorry Show, Vintage Machinery, Show Jumping and most of the other Horse and Pony classes will now be there for everyone to see along with the usual Trade and Craft stands creating a vibrant atmosphere for all to enjoy on the one day.
Ayr County Show is and always has been a major part of Ayrshire’s calendar and brings much business to the local area which is an important factor.
The management committee hopes that continued support from members, sponsors, exhibitors, trade stands, young farmers and the general public will be forthcoming to allow the event to grow into the future after this major restructure.”
