Series 6 - 30 Minute Versions: 15. Staffordshire County Show



Peter, now in his twenties, has been rearing Berkshire pigs since he was ten. He last competed at the Staffordshire County Show when he was 14. Having balanced university with work on the family farm in the Peak District, he wants to forge a future in farming. If his prized Berkshire pigs win rosettes in the competition ring, it will be not just recognition for him but also a much-needed boost for the breed, one of the rarest and oldest in the UK. While Peter hopes his pigs don’t give him the runaround, dedicated farming couple Lianne and Mark are working hard to grow their pedigree herd of South Devon cattle on rented land near Leek in Staffordshire. They are focused on giving their cows the ultimate beauty treatment so they shine in the show ring. South Devon cattle may be known as gentle giants, but overnighting at the showground, keeping up their energy levels and performing well in front of the judge are just some of the challenges they face to add more hard-earned rosettes to their collection.
