For Farmers

Agriculture is at the heart of the Great Yorkshire Show and supporting and celebrating farming is an integral part of what we do.

From expert talks to discount tickets, national competitions and displays of top-of-the-range equipment, the Great Yorkshire Show covers all faces of farming life.

There are a range of free events to enjoy over the course of the show, many of which are hosted by YAS Farming Networks.  With guest speakers delivering talks on everything from rural crime prevention to innovation, free farmer health checks and supportive farming charities, there really is something for everyone (see below for full event listings).

There’s also top quality livestock in competition and the Grand Cattle Parade in the Main Ring on Wednesday and Thursday is a sight not to be missed.

Over at the machinery lines, there’s the latest in agricultural technology from tractors to combines and every farming implement in between.

In 2019 we were delighted to welcomethe Exmoor Women in Farming group who made the long journey north and are joined us on Wednesday. There were several opportunities to meet them including the Future Farmers Breakfast Meeting.
