Agriculture at the Show
Agriculture is at the heart of the Great Yorkshire Show. It is the reason the Yorkshire Agricultural Society was formed in 1837 and it is still as important to us now as it was then.
Everywhere you look around the Showground, there is an agricultural connection. Visit the Lely robotic milking demonstration, which will house a herd of dairy cows and demonstrate the milking process. The robotics keep a record of each cow’s data, including health, weight and amount of milk given, which means she can be fed and cared for accordingly.
Seminars will return to the seminar room in Hall 1 with a packed programme over the three days, showcasing agriculture and innovation. Further details will be added for 2017 as events are confirmed.
The Great Yorkshire Show is synonymous with top quality livestock and the Grand Cattle Parade which takes place in the Main Ring on Wednesday and Thursday highlights this and is a sight not to be missed. In addition, the Charolais Cattle Society is holding its Summer National Show with around 100 head of cattle expected.
Head to the machinery lines to see the latest in agricultural technology, from tractors to combines and every farming implement in between.
Fordson is celebrating 100 year anniversary and a range of agricultural machinery dating back to 1917 and across the years will be on display on the President's Lawn.
Finally it is our farmers who really bring the agricultural content to the Show and with a wealth of experience and diversity we value their input, listen to their feedback and look forward to a year round relationship enabling the Society to continue to work to the needs of our core audience.
We will continue to update this page of the website as events are confirmed for 2017.
