Next Show Date: Saturday 18th August 2018
  • 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 with prize money of £12 first prize in each class, this has turned out to be very well supported. New in 2015, we will be re-introducing the Suffolk Classes following requests from breeders. 

    Young handler classes are now split into 2 - under 10 on show day & 11 to 16yrs on show day.  To be judged on presentation & turnout of both sheep & handler.


    New for 2017 - Charolais Sheep will have their own classes at this year's show.
