Gate num­bers were up about 400 on last year.

Gayle Pott said the Mun­dub­bera Show So­ci­ety was happy with this year’s show and said it was ex­tremely well sup­ported.

“The spirit of it was alive for all to see,” Mrs Pott said. “You didn’t have to go far to hear ev­ery­one say­ing how great it was.”

Miss Show­girl Me­gan Vi­cary, 22, said she had not missed a show.

“We need to look af­ter our farm­ers, as we need to eat; oth­er­wise I def­i­nitely see a bright fu­ture for ru­ral Aus­tralia,” she said.
