Watch: Old film captures a ploughing match at Listooder from 1965
and live on Freeview channel 276
This week's clip features ploughing in Co Down from 1965 and courtesy of UTV © ITV.
The notes to this clip read: “A horse-ploughing match at Listooder, near Crossgar. The beautiful shire horses in all their finery pull a manual plough. They’re up against a tractor in this competition. The tractor isn’t going as well or is nearly as graceful.”
