representatives, causes unnecessary suffering to an animal, unfairly improves its performance in

or the Society into disrepute.
Inspection
All Participants at the Show shall provide promptly to the Show Office and/or Inspectors, upon
request, whatever information and produce any documents reasonably required for the proper
monitoring of compliance with the Showing Rules and shall fully co-operate with any inspections.
All entries to the Show and personal property of the Participants are subject to inspection by the
Inspectors. Participants shall co-operate with the Inspectors, provide access to the animal and
shall provide all such information as is reasonably required in connection with such inspections.
Participants shall provide to an Inspector, if requested, samples of urine, milk, blood, or any other
body fluids suitable for analysis.
Participants shall not deliver any medication, preparation or substance to their animals, by any
method whilst on site, except that administered by the Show veterinarian. The only exception

Additionally Inspectors or their nominated representatives shall have the authority to perform on
any animal entered in the Show any of the following:
a) a milkout, collection and testing of any of the animal’s body fluids of any individual cow or
cows, after the milking classes have completed; and

6. Following completion of milking cow classes the Organisers and/or Inspectors shall have the
option to take milk samples from a representative group of cows, prior to milkout, from a
representative number of the milking cow classes. If inspections are to be carried out, an
announcement will be made prior to the judging of the milking cow classes.
34. MILKING
The vacuum pump in the Dairy will be available for the use of exhibitors arriving on Thursday 9
July. However milk will be accepted for payment between the hours of 5 pm and
7 pm only.
The Show being purely of an educational nature, it behoves producers of milk to ensure that the
milking of cows and disposal of the milk is carried out under hygienic conditions at the Show
Dairy. The following Regulations are therefore designed for the benefit of exhibitors and the
public.
26
Suitable white clothing must be worn by all attendants.
1)
2)
Udders and hind quarters must be in a clean condition before milking.
3)
All milking must be done in the Show Dairy. In order to be of assistance to exhibitors and
herdsmen the following arrangements have been made:
a)
All milk produced during the Show will become property of the Society and will be
purchased by the Society at 20p per litre. The sale of milk by exhibitors or their herdsmen other
than to the Society is strictly prohibited.
b)
All pails and utensils can be washed and sterilised at the Show Dairy free of charge.
c)
Hot water will be provided.
d)
To prevent contamination of milk by antibiotics, random testing of milk will be carried out
by Stewards at the Show.
SHEEP
35. Every animal entered for competition must be entered or certified as eligible to be entered
in the Flock Book of its breed.
36. “Two-Shear” and “Shearling” determine sheep dropped in 2013 and 2014 respectively,
except where individual breed societies dictate otherwise, for example - year start 1st September

37. The colouring of sheep is prohibited. Any sheep found to have been artificially coloured
or otherwise faked with a view to deceiving the Judges shall be disqualified.
38. The Mutilation (Permitted Procedures) (England) Regulations 2007 Schedule 5.5 requires
that sheep must have sufficient tail retained to cover the vulva of the female sheep and the anus
of male sheep. Any sheep which does not comply with the aforementioned regulations will not
be eligible to be judged in its class. The decision will be made at the discretion of the Society’s
Chief Veterinary Officer or his representative.
SHEEP & GOATS
39. Scrapie. Ewes which have lambed in the previous 30 days, in lamb ewes and ewes that are
subject to procedures which change the seasonal breeding pattern may not be exhibited at the
Show. Also female goats which have kidded in the previous 30 days and in kid goats may not be
exhibited at the Show. All exhibitors of sheep and goats will be required to sign a declaration to
this effect at entry stage.
HEALTH & SAFETY
40.

safety of everyone present. For these measures to be effective, everyone must take all
reasonable precautions to avoid and prevent accidents occurring and must obey the instructions
of the Organisers and all the Officials and Stewards.
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR ALL LIVESTOCK EXHIBITORS
Brucellosis Eradication
Cattle which calve or show evidence of calving whilst on the Showground must be placed in the
approved isolation immediately pending their possible early removal from the Showground.
Where an animal calves full term and the owner arranges for a blood sample and a vaginal swab
to be taken privately and submitted to an approved laboratory (e.g. VIC, Itchen Abbas, Winchester,
SO21 1BX Telephone 01962 779966) and the results are negative, the animal may return to the
Show lines at the discretion of the Show Manager.
27
Where an animal calves prematurely or aborts, the Divisional Veterinary Office, (Telephone 01245
398176) must be informed immediately. The animal must be placed in the approved isolation
accommodation pending sampling by a DEFRA authorised Veterinary Surgeon. If the animal
calves or aborts before it can be isolated, full precautions must be taken to isolate and disinfect
any possible contaminated standings, bedding, utensils, clothing and vehicles. The animal cannot
take part in the Show and once fit to travel* can be returned home. The suspect animal must be
isolated during transit.
When milking, udder cloths, hands or milking machine units must be suitably disinfected between
each cow.
Dams may suckle their own calves. All other calves must be fed reconstituted dried milk.
