KERR at the Black Isle Show 2022 – Highlights & Review
The Black Isle Show 2022 certainly lived up to its billing as ‘The largest Agricultural show in the North’ when it returned to the Mannsfield Showground, Muir of Ord on the Black Isle peninsular in August.
After a two-year absence, the 183rd-anniversary show once again provided a great way to mix business with pleasure, attracting public and trade visitors from across the Highlands and islands.
An important commercial event that features a large plant, machinery and trade stand area, there were hundreds of trade exhibitors providing a great opportunity to see the latest plant and machinery products while meeting and discussing requirements with experienced representatives from a variety of businesses and service providers.
As can be seen in our show highlights video, this popular annual event has something for all ages and features all manner of farming activities. There was livestock on parade and display, horse and dog shows, live arena events including great Monster Truck shows, food and craft tents, vintage vehicles, competitions plus a large fun fair to keep everyone entertained.
Cameron Kerr, Director – Kerr Compressor Engineers commented: “Building on the success of our attendance at the previous 2019 event, it was great to be back at the Black Isle Show with such large crowds attending and to have so much interest on the stand. This popular event provides a great opportunity to showcase our latest products and for us to meet both existing and potential new customers from the agriculture and farming community plus from other businesses and industries.”.
