This year, the generators at the show were powered by Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) reducing carbon emissions by 90 per cent, with 95 per cent of the rubbish from the show recycled off-site.

A statement from the organisers on social media said: “Thank you to everyone who exhibited, sponsored, showed livestock and visited.
