SHEEP breeders have submitted a record number of entries from their flocks for the Woolsery Show on Monday.
Organisers said on Friday the event was going to go ahead "with any sort of luck" despite the rain in recent months.
WINNER: South Tawton breeder Jeff Dunn receives the prize for rearing the Supreme Champion at Woolsery Show 2011.
They have still been able to take tractors and other vehicles onto the ground at Clovelly Court and ensure the grass is cut and preparation can be made.
"We've got an awful lot of sheep, more than ever before," said show committee chairman Pat Martin.
"For the first time we've got Devon and Cornwall Longwools in their own classes rather than included in any other British breed."
The show's also been given an extra number of sheep hurdles this year to allow the expansion.
Woolsery welcomes around 5,000 people each year to the showground, one of the most picturesque in the country.
The main ring display will feature farming through the ages and experts will be judging cattle, horses, ponies and crafts and produce.
The cattle and sheep include native and continental breeds.
