  • Short Summary

    Cattle, sheep and pigs at the Royal Show in Manchester.

  • Description

    The Royal Show at Manchester.

    Agriculture exhibition / contests. Animals are judged. Pan left on cows tied along long row; with men on stools milking them - some contest; on other side people watching. CU Cow; w/ number card hanging round her neck. Looks like a Jersey; anyway some very sweet looking cow. Bulls (Holsteins?) being led round ring; sign on roof over stalls in BG Aberdeen Angus. CU Prize bull w/ owner. ECU bull's head; ring in nose; w/ chain; he is licking his nose with his big tongue!

    CU pan on some very round and woolly white sheep. Next; some pigs run toward camera; w/ men behind them driving them; all holding boards. CU pig looking for food on ground. The men showing the animals in this are probably farmers; one would think; but they wear long coats; some even white; like veterinarians.

    Livestock. County fair.
