Usk Show

Usk Farmers Club was formed in 1844 with the purpose of promoting crop husbandry and animal breeding. The earliest event was a ploughing match but soon expanded to include classes for crops so , particularly root crops. A natural progression was to include competitions for farm animals, and before long the ladies of the house thought their domestic skills were worthy of demonstration. The day’s entertainment widened out to cover the equine world, which in those early days included horses for heavy and light haulage in town, country and underground in the mines; as well as the hunters and ponies with which we are familiar today. 

Usk Show has been at it's current venue since 1989, being able to purchase it in 2002 thereby securing it's future after having many homes following it's move from it's former long time home of Llancayo Farm in 1984. 

Agricultural Shows have had to evolve with the times and Usk Show now includes arena events, horticulture and homecraft displays, a dog show, demonstrations of rural crafts and vintage machinery, exhibitions of poultry, rabbits and goats and a leading display of steam and other models. There are numerous Trade Stands of all shapes and sizes, displaying Food, Crafts, Agricultural supplies, gifts and clothes.
