Some poul­try shows have made the de­ci­sion to can­cel their 2017 events be­fore hav­ing their hand forced. All shows within the time­frame fell vic­tim to the rul­ing.

Scot­tish Na­tional Poul­try Show sec­re­tary Robert Mac­don­ald said af­ter can­celling the 2017 event: “To­day can only be called my ‘dark­est hour’ and I’m hurt­ing like never be­fore, but I have to come back stronger than ever. Let’s hope for a great one next year.”

Among many other shows can­celled were The Read­ing and District Ban­tam So­ci­ety Show (Ban­tam Clas­sic), the High Peak Poul­try Club Show, the North­ern Poul­try So­ci­ety Cham­pi­onship Show, the Peebles & District Poul­try & Ban­tam Club Show and the Ul­ster Poul­try Fed­er­a­tion Show.

Ul­ster Show sec­re­tary Neal Adams said: “We tried ev­ery av­enue but un­for­tu­nately we have been left with no choice other than to can­cel. We were well on course for a bumper en­try which is dis­ap­point­ing, but we will be in touch with every­one who en­tered re­gard­ing en­try fees etc.”
