Sarah Swadling visits Truro's annual Primestock Show in Cormwall to find out how important such shows are to the Christmas meat trade. Truro's show is unique because it is held right in the middle of the city centre. For one day only, cattle and sheep are offloaded, judged and then auctioned off to butchers and local abattoirs ready for Christmas. Primestock Shows, or Fatstock shows as they otherwise known, are held all over the country in time for the festive period.
