The poul­try sec­tion’s en­tries died off for a few years, but last year the num­ber of en­tries im­proved and a huge turkey was an ex­hibit which cre­ated re­newed in­ter­est.

This year, even this early, the en­tries are build­ing up so go and get your en­tries in for the price of just 50 cents per en­try.

The sec­re­tary’s of­fice is open now to take show en­tries from 11.30am un­til 4.30pm each day un­til Friday, October 6 when en­tries close at 4.30pm.

Those in­ter­ested in show­ing off their show­day best can try their luck in the Miss Show Girl com­pe­ti­tions.

There’s also the pet show com­pe­ti­tion in the en­ter­tain­ment area from 12.30pm.

There are sec­tions for dogs, pup­pies, cats, kit­tens and the most un­usual pet at the show.

The show com­mit­tee is of­fer­ing sub­stan­tial prize money in the Sheep Sec­tion to en­tice more en­tries and lift the pro­file of one of the show’s most tra­di­tional cat­e­gories.

The Sheep Sec­tion now of­fers prize money for cham­pion and re­serve cham­pion for dif­fer­ent breeds of sheep and for the cham­pi­onships of in­ter­breed rams and ewes and groups of three.

Also on of­fer is the Supreme Cham­pion of Corowa Show, Re­serve Cham­pion Sheep of Corowa Show and the most suc­cess­ful ex­hibitor in the Sheep Sec­tion.

Sheep farm­ers are also en­cour­aged to bring along a fleece to be judged in the fleece sec­tion.

From sheep power to horse power – the His­tor­i­cal Ve­hi­cles and Ma­chin­ery Club will have their best on dis­play at the show­grounds through­out the day.

One lucky show-goer will go home with a lucky gate prize of ac­com­mo­da­tion for two nights at ClubMul­wala and vouch­ers to spend as an added bonus.

All you have to do is write your name on the back of ticket you are given when you come through the gate and place in the bucket out­side the sec­re­tary’s of­fice.

The lucky gate prize will be drawn on the day.
