Cows strut their stuff in Nathalia contest

By Country News on December 03, 2015

’Nathalia Agricultural Society has held its annual Genetics Australia On-Farm Challenge.

Judge Daniel Bacon from Lockington emphasised the high quality of the more than 110 cows in the competition, and said he found it difficult to judge some of the classes.

When judging was finished, competitors and other people associated with the Nathalia Agricultural Society sat down to a dinner and presentation at the showgrounds.

The society’s Ellen Grinter said the evening was a relaxing and enjoyable night for all and was one of the highlights of the society’s calendar.

Ms Grinter thanked Mr Bacon for his efforts as well as event sponsors Genetics Australia, the Broadwood and Botterill families, and Peter Commodore for his work organising the challenge.
