Sheep wait to be judged at the 122nd Devon County Show at the Westpoint Arena and Showground in Clyst St Mary near Exeter on May 18, 2017 in Devon, England. Established in 1872 it has grown into one of the South West's biggest county shows and is often seen as a curtain raiser for the whole showing season. Although primarily a agricultural livestock and produce showcase, it is also seen as a barometer for the health of the whole agricultural industry in general, which is in a state of uncertainty and flux following the UK's vote to leave the European Union.
