Winter Shows

Besides staging spring or summer shows (with livestock and machinery the important exhibits), the principal associations also staged winter shows to exhibit roots and fodder crops and dairy and home produce. A few winter shows still survive; some exhibit turnips, mammoth mangolds, etc.; others, fruits, samples of grains and grass seeds, and the like. Many associations also give kennel clubs, bird fanciers, and so on, the chance to exhibit and compete.
