LlaniMvery Agricultural Show,

Detailed Lists, Results and Guides

LlaniMvery Agricultural Show, The tenth annual exhibition in connection with the Llandovery Agricultural .Society was held in the Castle Grounds on Friday in abnormally warm weather and before a record attendance. This is undoubtly the best arranged show in the whole of Carmarthen- shire, although practically in its infancy- a creditable state of things, which is mainly due to the seaiching and courteous manner in which the hon. see., Mr C. P. Lewis, has, superintended the work of organisation since its inception. He has also always had. a large stafi of indefatigable stewards at his command. This year's president was Mr Gerwyn Jones, Pantglas, the vice-president being Sir James Hills-Johnes, Y.C., G.C.P> Dolaucothi, whilst the hon. treasurership was again undertaken by Mr Jonah Watkins. The judges were Horse and ponies Mr J. G. Kirby. Penllergare Mr Davies, Broad oak Mr Griliiths, Price, Abercray Mr J. Price, Pipton. Shorthorns and classes 1 and 2- Sheep: Mr Richards, Gell.vwernen Mr E. Burnett, Golden Grove. Castlemartins and pigs Mr E. Evans, Maesymynach; Mr Harries Maerdy. Farm produce: Mr Treharne, Carmarthen; Roderick, Llettglyd. Green crops Mr 11 Falconer. Bremenda. In every department there was a decided improvement on previous years, the entries having increased by 80. A feature of the show was the large entry of Herefords, and in one or two j of the competitions, the judges had considerable difficulty in arriving at a decision. This was particularly the case in the class for yearling bulls and heifers. The two-year-old',heifers were a very good class, the whole of the awards being given to four of the half-dozen animals shown by Mr James, Llwynjack. The Castlemartins, also, were an exceedingly fine lot especia'ly the young exhibits although they showed signs of having been brought straight from the grass. In fact,.all the'exhibits in the yard were very fairly shown. The Shorthorn bull belonging to Mr J. Harries, Penybank was a grand animal, showing'plenty of size and quality The horse department was very well filled, many of the exhibits showing excellent quality. The prize-winning cart brood mare was worthy of better company, and is undoubtly, a very valuable animal. Hackneys too, came in for high eulogiums from the judges, the,best brood mare being a beautiful mover andjshowing bone and quality com- bined. With the exception of the placed animals, the cobs were an ordinary lot, capable of vast improvement. Sheep were also a ,arge entry and of uniformly high merit, the yearling rams being so good that every animal received a card. One of the most successful exhibitors throughout the day was Mr D. Jones, Llanfair, who unfort- unately for the district, is shortly leaving for Cardiganshire. The annual dinner was afterwards held at the King's Head Hotel, when Mr D. S. Thomas, (mayor) presided, in the absence of Mr Gerwyn Jones. The following is the PRIZE LIST. CATTLE. CLASS A-HEREFORDS Eull, aged lef, Mr D Williams, Erryd Farm 2nd, Mrs A James Ystradwalter.
