Next Show Date: Saturday 21st August 2021
  • SheepThe Sheep section at Gosforth Show attracts the most entries in the livestock section. We have had increased numbers over the last few years in all classes with breeds including the Herdwick bred on the Cumbrian fells, also the North of England Mule and the Continental Texel. We also have classes for Swaledale and our popular Any Other Breed class, which always attracts large entries of many different breeds ranging from UK rare breeds to other Continentals. In 2012 the show held it's first Jacob sheep classes. New in 2015, we will be re-introducing the Suffolk Classes following requests from breeders and in 2017 we introduced the Charolais sheep classes. 

    Breed championship rosettes will be presented by the Jacob Society and the Charolais Society

    Due to the popular any other breed section and the huge variance in breeds we have split this class into Native and Non Native

    Young handler classes are now split into 3 classes - under 7 on show day, 7yrs to 10yrs & 11 to 16yrs on show day.  To be judged on presentation & turnout of both sheep & handler.
