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 discounted tickets, national competitions and displays of top-of-the-range equipment, the Great Yorkshire Show covers all aspects of farming life.

New For 2024

The World Ayrshire Federation Annual Conference 2024 will bring together around 100 farmers from countries including Kenya, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and America at the Show as part of a UK Tour. The Great Yorkshire Show is the only agricultural show they will attend as part of an 18-day UK tour exploring how UK farmers breed Ayrshire cattle.

There’s lots of new attractions, including:

  • Craft Beer Bar with award-winning Yorkshire beers
  • The Battle of the Butchers
  • Return of the much loved People’s Choice Competition
  • Grimme four row self-propelled potato harvester on display on the President’s Lawn
  • Countryside Voices Marquee at the Countryside Arena
  • Daily Pie & Policy and Tea & Tech talks at the Innovation Zone
  • Methane-powered tractor from Russells farm machinery on display at the Innovation Zone
  • The Great Yorkshire Inn on Seventh Avenue

As always, the UK’s best livestock will be competing and the Grand Cattle Parade in the Main Ring on Thursday and Friday is a must-see.

We also have the latest agricultural technology from tractors to combines in the machinery lines and showcase the cutting edge of farming in our Innovation Zone.
