The Farmers' Country Showdown 21 June 2022: Tuesday on BBC Two 11

Mid Devon Show – For Dartmoor tenant farmers Louise and Olly, winning prizes for their Beltex sheep at the Mid Devon Show means a lot. Louise needs that recognition as a top breeder to secure their future, which is especially important now their young children clearly love farming life. Meanwhile, Amelia and Ben are so committed to rearing their Charollais sheep that they rent land and hold down other jobs to make their farming dream pay. Show day is a chance to go head-to-head with the best breeders in the country, and for their four-year-old son to face the judge showing his own sheep.

Westmorland County Show – Rodney and Annabell’s Cumbrian farm has been in the family for 80 years, and since the beginning has always reared Ayrshire cattle. With their finest cows in tow, they return to the competition ring at the Westmorland County Show to try to win one of the top prizes. Meanwhile, Cheshire farmer Helen is getting her pedigree Red Poll cattle in top condition with welcome help from friend Thomas. She has set her sights on a champion win, but as both pairs are taking their own favourites into the show ring and will be in direct competition with one another, anything could happen.
