At the Gillingham & Shaftesbury, we are very honored to have some of the country’s best livestock exhibitors who bring along top quality animals to compete in over 280 classes. We pride ourselves in responding to requests for new breed classes, if a particular breed dominates a mixed section we will create new classes, providing there are sufficient entries to make both sections viable.
