Livestock

The Royal Norfolk Show gives exhibitors the chance to showcase their finest livestock at the largest two-day Agricultural Show in the Country. 

The Show offers over 600 classes, 196 special classes and 258 championship classes for cattle, sheep, pigs and goats.

Poultry, including waterfowl and turkeys, rabbits, cavies and eggs, will be among those featuring in the ever-popular small livestock marquee, which will again have a Championship Row.

Judges from all over the country will be examining the entries which range from pet juvenile classes up to the Best of Breeds. Championship rosettes and diplomas awarded by the British Rabbit Council will be on offer, together with many rosettes from supporting clubs in the poultry section. The area will also have a particular focus on education so we can find out about all of our favourite pets!

Livestock Enquiries

A full list of classes, schedules and how to register for classes will be open soon, in the meantime for any livestock matters please email. The judges list shall be published here at the end of January 2022.
