As well as World, European and International class ploughing we will also host the Northern Ireland Vintage Ploughing Competition which will see qualifiers

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.
