They will be in one of fifteen different ploughing classes or six ‘Plough-Off’ Finals and their aim is to be British Champion in their respective discipline. For the finalists, their aim is to be Supreme Champion and win a place to represent their country overseas in the 2024 World or European Ploughing Contests.

Visitors to the Championships will not only be able to appreciate the ploughing skills on show, they will also be able to shop in the trade stand, shopping and craft area for anything from a tractor or a barn; to a garden trug or a children’s puzzle. They will also be able to see local and national companies demonstrating the most up-to-date machinery available on the market today and in contrast, many vintage tractors and implements on display from days gone by.
