Taking place at Dalkeith Country Park on Saturday, this year’s Dalkeith Farm Show promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

The showcase event for local agriculture will feature all the usual livestock and pony classes, as well sheep shearing, a display of vintage tractors and a wide selection of exhibition trade stands.

Other attractions have been added to the bill for the first time.

These include a ‘Pickup Pull’ event in the main ring. Teams of four will attempt to pull a Mitsubishi L200 pickup around a course, with the winners taking home a £400 cash prize.

This year’s show is being sponsored by supermarket giant Morrisons.

The full programme of events can be found on the show website at www.dalkeithshow.co.uk
