Cows were on the mooove

Shepparton News - Country News - - FRONT PAGE -

Eigh­teen of Shep­par­ton’s Mooov­ing Art herd have been moooved to Mel­bourne to co­in­cide with the Royal Mel­bourne Show.

The Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety of Vic­to­ria in­tro­duced a new space this year called ‘The Meadow’, with a food and bev­er­age fo­cus.

The so­ci­ety con­tacted Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil to see if it would pro­vide one or two of the painted cows for this space. Coun­cil in­stead of­fered 18.

‘The Meadow’ was not the only place the

herd could be found at the show, which ran from Septem­ber 22 to Oc­to­ber 2.

Many were at The Em­po­rium (next to the Her­ald Sun Cafe) and at the en­trance to the Fam­ily Ad­ven­ture Pavil­ion.

A com­pe­ti­tion to co­in­cide with the cow’s city visit was run through­out the show by #Mooov­ingArt and #VisitShep­par­ton on In­sta­gram.

The win­ner will be cho­sen at ran­dom and will win a two-night pack­age to Greater Shep­par­ton, en­trance into many lo­cal at­trac­tions, meal vouch­ers and a lo­cal prod­uct ham­per.

Ud­derly mar­vel­lous . . . Some of the Greater Shep­par­ton Mooov­ing Art herd pre­pare for duty at the Royal Mel­bourne Show.
