THE Denbigh and Flint Show plays host to hundreds of livestock classes.

These include Shires, cattle, sheep and pigs as they all compete for the many coveted prizes available.

The cattle section is not only host to the very familiar black and white of the dairy Holstein Friesians, but the less familiar breeds can also be seen, including British Blues and native cattle.

With all section championship winners eligible to exhibit in the relevant overall interbred championship, it’s all to play for on whet promises to be a busy day.

It really is worth seeking the cattle section out, just to see the huge variety of breeds on show.

The sheep section is popular as visitors always seem to admire the many varieties of the breeds and the high standard to which they are prepared for the show ring.

Pigs always draw a crowd as people do not often have the opportunity to get close to these enigmatic animals.

All sections host young handler classes.

Man's Best Friend is also welcome at the show.

A companion dog show (held under Welsh Kennel Club rules) is to be held in the countryside area.

The judges will be Tracy Brown and Ian Jones.

There is an entrance fee of £1 per class, which will include, for every entrant, a dog walkers safety pack.

Rosettes will be awarded from first to fourth, with special rosettes going to the best in show (and reserve), the best puppy in show (and reserve), the best novelty, best veteran and best junior handler.
