About Northern Expo

The Northern Expo, in three decades, has established itself as a regular autumn show fixture and one of the best in the U.K, boasting an impressive line-up of cattle and attracting the world’s top judges.

Northern Expo’s beginnings came with the decision to hold a club show in 1982 by members of the North West Holstein Breeders Club, then a fledgling club.

The 1982 show immediately enjoyed popularity, attracting a creditable 74 head of cattle from 21 exhibitors that year. While early honours were dominated by the Parboldhall and Greengill prefixes, enthusiasm, quality and numbers continued to grow resulting in more than one re-location for the event.

Over the last decade and more the show has witnessed continued development, which always welcomes new faces to enter as exhibitors. The quality and professionalism of the event has rapidly developed under a progressive show committee.

Northern Expo in its present form was born in 1996, welcoming entries from beyond the original club’s membership and attracting the very best Holsteins from as far apart as Doncaster, Aberdeen, Blackpool and the Scottish Borders.
