Truro Primestock Show brings farming to the city

Truro’s Annual Christmas Primestock Show is held in a marquee on Lemon Quay in the City Centre on the first Wednesday in December and is a favourite with farmers, country folk and townspeople alike.

A very popular event which brings the countryside and farming right into the heart of the City and it is believed to be the only Primestock Show in Britain to be held in the centre of a city, making the Truro Show a unique event.

Truro Christmas Primestock and Produce Show

Great to see our President at the ASAO meeting.HRH The Countess of Wessex, GCVO Patron of the ASAO joins delegates in listening to Breyton Milford of Agri-Expo talking about engaging with the younger generation.

He spoke of the decline of agricultural Shows in South Africa and what they are doing to rejuvenate them. He shared these quotes:

"If you do not change you will become extinct."

"The sooner you let go of the old show, you will find the 'new' show"

"Be ready to change when the opportunities come."
