The Livestock Section is the big attraction of this popular Christmas Show and Cattle and Sheep exhibitors travel the length and breadth of Cornwall, and often from over the Tamar in West Devon, to show off their excellent quality stock. Each year the Show is full to the marquee’s capacity with about 30 tethered cattle and 50 lambs with judging taking place throughout the morning. The judges have always remarked on the outstanding quality of the stock on show.

The Truro Show is unique in the county in that it is the only Christmas Primestock Show to auction its show animals. At 2.30pm the Show Ring is packed with buyers and spectators for the grand auction of cattle and sheep which is conducted each year by Truro Livestock Auctioneers Lodge & Thomas. Most of the stock is purchased by local butchers and abattoirs ensuring that their customers are guaranteed some of the county’s finest beef and lamb for Christmas.
