THE Royal Welsh grassland event is being held in Denbighshire later this week.

Clwyd is the feature county for this year's Royal Welsh Show and the grassland event is to be held at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi, near Ruthin, on Thursday, May 12.

The day will include working machinery demonstrations in the field, forage trial plots covering a wide range of the latest crops and varieties, livestock equipment for the grassland farmer, plus a variety of trade stands and suppliers containing the full range of grassland and livestock requirements.
