No dogs allowed in the Society building.

Please note the Newbury & District Agricultural Society is not a central point recording center
(CPRC). You will therefore be required to list all the individual tag numbers of the entries attending the
Show on your movement license.

Every animal entered in breed classes must be entered in, or certified as eligible, or accepted for entry
in the flock book of its breed. Where the animal is entered by the exhibitor as eligible or accepted for entry in the flock book, proof of such eligibility or acceptance must be furnished to the secretary, if required. Exhibitors are requested not to use bloom dip or bloom powder on exhibits. Judges will be asked to deduct marks/points from animals so treated.

Docking: you are reminded that the welfare of Livestock (prohibition operations) reg. 1982 requires that sheep must have sufficient tail retained to cover the vulva of the female sheep and the anus of male sheep. In the event of a formal complaint being received for infringement of this requirement the matter will be referred to the Society vet.
