Thousands of visitors once again flocked to the Balmoral Show on Friday for the third day of the 2018 exhibition.
The sunshine and high temperatures remained at the Balmoral Park in Lisburn for another day at the biggest agricultural show in Ireland, which is celebrating its 150th birthday.
High profile visitors to this year's event have included HRH Princess Anne and Northern Ireland Secretary of State Karen Bradley.
Rhonda Geary, operations director with the Royal Ulster Agricultural Show, said she was pleased with the numbers this year.
"The weather has been lovely, which of course is an added bonus," she added.
There's were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained - in the children's farm, fascinated children pressed their faces against the bars of the enclosures as they attempted to get up close and personal with tiny goat kids, lolloping rabbits, scurrying rodents and furry friends of the six-legged variety.
Meanwhile, the livestock pens were a hive of activity as farmers blow-dried pedigree cattle and herded them through to the cattle ring to await the moment of judgment.
