British farming show goes digital in face of coronavirus lockdown

Rural communities disappointed by the cancellation of farming shows due to coronavirus will still be able to experience the fun of the fair from their homes – by joining the first online agricultural show, Farmers Weekly reports.

The free one-day event takes place on Saturday (2 May) and will feature the farming competitions, debates, innovations and demonstrations that are usually commonplace at shows across the country during the summer.

The Greatest Online Agricultural Show has been organised by estate manager David Hill, with support from the company Innovation for Agriculture.

Gates open online at 9am and the show will include a main area streaming video displays, as well as a livestock arena and areas hosting debates on the future of farming and land management, and showcasing the latest technology in the industry.

This will be supported by activities on the show’s twitter page. Demonstrations include sheep-dog trials and hedge laying.

Visitors need to register before the show.
