Poultry Show Classes

poultry show classes
Due to the massive increase in domestic chicken keeping, Mirfield Family Agricultural Show continues with its Poultry Show Section which was introduced in 2011. There are around forty two classes on the schedule across hard feather, soft feather, bantams, large fowl and water fowl.

Poultry Show Classes for 2017 

The poultry marquee opens from 8.30am, with staging and registration until 10.00am and judging from 10.15am. Once the judging has completed the exhibits and winners will be available for the public to see until 4pm, when the prize money will be awarded. All exhibits must be cleared by 5pm.

Unfortunately, there is no exhibitor parking on the showground, but there is free parking for exhibitors only at the cricket club across the road. There will be a temporary area assigned for dropping off near the Small Animal tent from 8.30am. However all vehicles must be removed or parked at the cricket club by 10.30am where there is an exhibitor’s car park. No vehicles will be allowed onto the show ground after 10am and before 4pm.

Mirfield Family Agricultural Show is unique in the Yorkshire poultry show calendar of events because as well as having a strong agricultural background, it encourages children and novices to get involved to make it a fantastic family day out.
