Pets high­light of school term

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Lambs, goats and calves were groomed to per­fec­tion, well be­haved and laz­ing in the sun at last week’s Agri­cul­ture days around Mata­mata. Hin­uera Pri­mary, Mata­mata In­ter­me­di­ate and Wal­ton Pri­mary schools had their Ag Days last week which was the high­light of the term for many of the chil­dren.

Many who take their pets to their school Ag days also take them to the an­nual Mata­mata A&P show on Oc­to­ber 9 or the Group Ag Day on Oc­to­ber 12 held at Bed­ford Park.

Group Ag day or­gan­is­ers are on the look­out for ex­tra sheep judges so if your in­ter­ested or want to reg­is­ter please con­tact Linda Lee on 888 0017.

Look out for our pa­per next week to see Ag Day pic­tures from other mata.
