Euroa Show a winner

By Country News

The annual Euroa Show was held on Saturday, October 26, and despite the cloudy weather, smiles were bright.

The cold air deterred some people from attending but didn't stop the local community from grabbing a cuppa and enjoying the festivities.

President Rod Sloan said the weather was a typical Euroa show day.

“Considering the weather, it was a successful day,” he said.

The 129th Euroa Show contained old favourites such as cattle and sheep judging, horse events, yard dog demonstrations and the Kids on Show event.

A highlight of the show was a great achievement by 94-year-old Jack Stevens from Pranjip, who has been showing for years.

Mr Stevens won Champion Fleece of Show and placed first in Super Fine Merino Fleece, Fine Merino Fleece and Medium Merino Fleece this year.

Rod Sloan said the Euroa Show was a true country show.

“I'd like to give a big thanks to the committee and all our volunteers, without them we couldn't run the show.

“Thank you for the hours of hard work and we look forward to next year's show,” he said.
