Lesmahagow Show

Lesmahagow Farmers’ Society held its first show in 1807, and it has been an annual event ever since.

The aim of the show is to present the skills of the local people both in agriculture – through livestock showing, sheep shearing, sheep dog trials, but also in crafts, home baking, etc.

The show is fully committed to involving all villagers of Lesmahagow and surrounding areas, especially children, by incorporating many fun but also educational activities for the youngsters. We hope that it has something for everyone, young and old, so please come along and join in!

Lesmahagow Show 2017

The 2017 show took place on Saturday 27th May at the Showfield, Brocketsbrae (by kind permission of the Forestry Commission). The rain held off until late afternoon, making for a great day!

Local farmer, George Gardner, of Lupus Farm, Lesmahagow, judged the champion of champions contest, and picked out the overall beef cattle winner, a Limousin cross heifer from Dot and Ian Goldie, Greenfield, Cummertrees, Annan, as best overall.

Reserve in the beef inter-breed, was a British Blue heifer from Tom and Alison Cockburn, Kingside, Leadburn.

Best in the dairy section was last year’s show supreme, Grangehall Stanleycup Lyme, from Andrew and Euan Lawrie, Grangehall, Pettinain.

In the sheep inter-breed, Malcolm Coubrough, Hartside, Lamington, led the way, with a one-crop Blackface ewe, while reserve was a Texel gimmer from the Clark family’s Teiglum flock.

The Clydesdale section was won by Jim Rochead’s Malcolmwood Lady Muck, a three-year-old filly.
