The largest Orkney show was a busy event from early in the morning till after 5pm. Good weather again kept the large crowd there. We showed the 6620 premium tractor by kind permission of Tormiston Farm, The Stewart livestock trailer by kind permission of E Tait & co, Dounby and the Shelbourne Reynolds Powermix diet feeder by kind permission of Messrs Donaldson, Coldomo, Stenness. The Davidson family took the cattle championship with the same beast that won at Dounby.

Dounby Show – 10 Aug 2006

Despite a poor weather forecast, the show was well attended, and the good weather for most of the day made it a successful event. On show were the Redrock trailers and farm machinery for the first time. Shelbourne Reynolds had the Powermix II diet feeder with improved strength and the shear bucket and shear grabs. The John Deere lawn and groundscare range created much interest with several people making purchases on the day. The Hotline electric fence display kept people back from the large Overum reversible Plough – we had not powered it up. The Davidson family from Skaill won the cattle championship. They had their latest JD 6920 tractor on show at the fancy dress parade in the evening. The autopowr stepless transmission is easy to control at these unusual events.

Hope show – 9th Aug 2006

The show in South Ronaldsay started with a windy day and the weather got worse. Ferries were canceled and at one stage we were asked to move our Strautmann Vetoes II forage Wagon closer to the main show ring so that spectators and exhibitors could get some shelter. You have to be determined to make a show work in all weathers and everyone put in a lot of effort.

Shapinsay show 8th Aug 2006

Good weather for showing livestock at the Shapinsay made exhibitors happy. The weather broke in the afternoon which may have reduced some of the non farming spectator numbers. The Leslie family from Quoymorhouse won the cattle championship and the sheep champion was shown by. We had the Cow comfort slat mats on show developing some interest. The John Deere 115 42″ lawn tractor is always a hit with the show visitors young and old.

On show were the John Deere 6320SE tractor with 631 front loader and for the first time the Strautmann 1030 Vertimix diet feeder.

The winning ticket for the prize draw at the Orkney shows was drawn as a result of a purchase at the East Mainland show by Mr G Sclater from Stenness.
