Can’t go wrong with tra­di­tional

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

No agri­cul­tural and pas­toral show is com­plete with­out the very thing that made it so in the be­gin­ning.

So with­out fur­ther ado, we bring you the var­i­ous live­stock and re­lated events.

To­day, the Wanaka A & P Show has grown be­yond ev­ery­one’s ex­pec­ta­tions, how­ever it still con­tin­ues to re­flect and show­case the pos­i­tive vi­brancy of the com­mu­nity, all the while em­brac­ing chal­lenges and evo­lu­tion within agri­cul­ture and pas­ture.

Within the live­stock events you can ex­pect to see cham­pion beef cat­tle, full blood boer goats, supreme fleece wool, stud and flock sheep and more - all proud to be the best of the best. Th­ese will be held in the Sheep Yards, Cat­tle and Boer Goats Ring and Wool Room on both days. It’s also ‘game on’ in the Wool Pav­il­ion, with an im­pres­sive Fleece Dis­play to wow all. Be­lieve it or not, not all wool is the same. Each has a dif­fer­ent feel and func­tions dif­fer­ently within the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try. Wool can be viewed in the Wool Pav­il­ion on Fri­day from 11am, and Satur­day from 9am. All those wish­ing to en­ter their wool must be in the Wool Pav­il­ion by Thurs­day 11am for mi­cron and yield test­ing on-site. Use Gate 4 with en­trance via Stone St. For all those ded­i­cated farm­ers who wish to both show­case and shop, there is cer­tainly lots to see and pur­chase dur­ing the event too. Take the time to wan­der around once your com­pe­ti­tion is over, and view the many wares for sale. Th­ese in­clude al­paca, llama and os­trich re­lated prod­ucts, live­stock, an­i­mal prod­ucts, ma­chin­ery, parts, ac­ces­sories, power tools, pumps, mow­ers, chain­saws, chem­i­cals, fer­tiliser, farm and do­mes­tic trail­ers, horses and equip­ment, weed and pest con­trol, farm equip­ment, ve­hi­cles and so much more! So if that farm truck is look­ing a bit worse for wear, why not strike up a con­ver­sa­tion with a stall­holder and sort out a deal?
