Ploughing Championship

Now that most crops have been harvested farmers are busy preparing the ground for next years crops by ploughing.
We paid a visit to Herefordshire to watch the activity at the British National Ploughing Championship and marvelled at skill and enthusiasm of the competitors.
There are 15 different classes with competitors using modern tractors,vintage tractors or traditional horses to demonstrate their ploughing expertise and points are awarded for the accuracy and appearance of their entries.
