Record crowds and quality cattle turned up for another celebration of country life in Kilmacolm and Port Glasgow.
Organisers of the annual agricultural show are delighted after a successful edition of it on Saturday.
Locals filled up the fields at the Knapps and enjoyed watching favourites like the Clydesdale horses, livestock and dogs taking centre stage.
But there was plenty of action outside the main ring to entertain the thousands of people who joined in the festivities.
Show president Andrew Laird, who is about to hand over the reins after three years at the helm, was delighted to go out on a high.
The Kilmacolm farmer, 42, who lives in Auchentiber Farm, said: “It was a fantastic day and we would like to thank everyone who came along and helped make it a success.
“I have been involved as a director for 24 years.
“We had a great number of entries, we always get great support from people in Kilmacolm and Port Glasgow.
“So many people work so hard to make it a success.
“We had some record numbers in our dogs this year.
Events included sections on cattle, sheep, Clydesdale horses, children’s classes, young handlers and young farmers.
Entertainment in and around the main ring included demonstrations of milking of cows and sheep shearing.
Chainsaw Wood Sculpture was also on show alongside vintage tractor parades as well as country capers competitions, a pet show and dancing from May Hughes school.
Throughout the day there were light horse competitions in show jumping, pony classes, tack and turnout, handy pony, fancy dress and games.
It all finished off with cross country for different age groups.
As well as the competitions there around 50 traders as well as other entertainment in tents.
Show chief Andrew added: “It is a great way to celebrate the countryside and show people how it works.”
