Agricultural machinery to feature heavily in Devon County Show

An agricultural machinery section is set to take centre stage at this year's Devon County Show, which takes place in May.

Organisers have announced the itinerary for this year's show, which will include a number of agricultural machinery exhibits for what they have dubbed one of the fastest growing sections of the show.

Much of the work with agricultural machinery at the show will be undertaken by Mole Valley Farmers, which is also a main sponsor of the event. The group will have their own stand and demonstration area which is set to be the 'focal point of a fast-growing agricultural machinery section' at the annual event.

Elsewhere, organisers said they would be keeping farming, the countryside and food at the heart of this year's County Show, as it is responsible for raising the curtain on the South West's entire livestock and horse showing season, westernmorningnews.co.uk reports.

It was also announced that this year's show - which will run between May 22 and 24 - will include more agricultural trade stands than ever before. Not only that, some of the area's greatest livestock will also be on display across the entire show.

Special guests lined up for the show include secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs, Owen Patterson, HRH the Duke of Kent and president of the NFU, Meurig Raymond.

Speaking after the announcement was made, show secretary Ollie Allen told smallholder.co.uk: "It's great that we are able to celebrate 25 years at Westpoint, but it wouldn't have happened but for the foresight and courage of the leaders of the DCAA and the Devon County Show in being prepared to look forward and invest in the future, even at a time when that future looked distinctly uncertain."
