Our show Vets have asked that we make it mandatory that all exhibitors are to bring suitable covers to provide shelter for hot or wet weather for their sheep during their stay at the show as marquees are NOT provided. Veterinary inspections will be taking place on show day.
Livestock Exhibitors please note:
Please note that the Derbyshire County Show is now exempt from Pre-Movement Testing, DEFRA states that no animals are to be on the showground for more than 24 hours and that the sides of the sides of the marquees are to be removed. To cover all aspects of this, it has been decided that no animal is allowed on the ground until 6pm on the day before the show.
Horses must have been vaccinated to comply with the requirements of the primary course (1st vaccination and then 2nd vaccination between 21 – 92 days later), followed by the first booster (150 – 215 days) and all subsequent boosters. Horses may compete having received the primary course and prior to the first booster but not within 7 days of receiving a vaccine dose.
Horses must have been vaccinated within 6 months before the show but not less than 7 days of arriving at the show.
In-foal mares that have already had vaccinations of primary Equine Influenza course should be vaccinated 4-6 weeks before the foal is due to be born.
Foals should be vaccinated for Equine Influenza at 6 months to commence their primary course.
We urge all owners to adhere to strict biosecurity protocols at all times.
Vaccinations are subject to local risk assessments by the attending veterinarians.
