I NEXT WEEK'S ROYAL SHOW. Where the Welsh Border will Score. Hill stock from Wales will be one of the distinguishing features of the Royal Show which opens at Shrewsbury next Tuesday. From the fruitful vales of the Principality and its neighbour shires there will also be a very representative exhibit illustrative of the marked advance which the dairying industry is making. In addition to a comprehensive show of dairy catlle and butter and cheese, the Shrewsbury meeting promises to be exceptionally interesting in regard to the display of dairy plant of all kinds. The progress of mechanieal invention in its application to the dairy is not inferior to the advance which is being made in selection and management of stock. There will be 112 exhibits in the Dairy Shorthorn classes, in addition to 59 Lincoln- shire Red Shorthorns and 231 in the main Shorthorn section of the show. British HoUteins make an entry of 68, Jerseys 123, Guernseys 35. The breeds on which the dairy- ing industry is mainly dependent contribute their full share to swell the entry of cattle to 1272 as compared with 1,138 last year. Herefords, which have pretensions to dairy- ing qualities that have not yet been fully acknowledged, muster 157 strong. Out of a large number of new inventions entered for the Royal Agricultural Society's SíI ver mpdals many are designed to facilitate dairying operations and to economise labour both f tie farmer's wife and the big co-oper- ati»efai uries that are now springing up over the countryside. The improvement of churns and cream separators continues to exercise a vast amount of ingenuity. Yet another new milking machine will be on view, as well as a patent butter dryer and milk tester, tad a milk strainer which is designed on a L vel principle. Horses will make a very imposing display at Shrewsbury, one of the best all round displays ever seen in the world. Welsh ponies and cobs will be one of the distin- guishing features. In a very representative collection of sheep of all breeds Shropshires and Welsh mountain sheep will demonstrate the stout qualities in commination with delicate flesh which have given them the position they hold in the market. There will be 145 exhibits of Shropshirea against 75 at Bristol, and 61 Kerry Hills, while Welsh mountain sheep will make a notable rally with G7 exhibits. The prod uce classes are larger than ever. There will be very keen competition in the butter and cheese classes, the entries in the former being 154: and in the latter 208. There is a significant advance in the exhibits of wool, in which section additional prizes are being offere for the encouragement of well-judged crosses. The Show opans on June 30tb, and lasts five days.
