The event is set to be a great day out for all the family and will showcase qualified competitors from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland competing in six different classes including World Style Conventional, World Style Reversible, Vintage Classes and Horse Class.

As well as World, European and International class ploughing we will also host the Northern Ireland Vintage Ploughing Competition which will see qualifiers from this event representing Northern Ireland at European Vintage level.

There will be a horse ploughing class on the Saturday and this will give spectators a view of the heritage where ploughing started with horses and ploughmen showing their skills from very young to the more mature competitor.
