. . . Year 10 Finley High School stu­dent Shi­ane Ma­son wran­gles Penny the Shorthorn calf for a team pho­to­graph at Nu­murkah Show last week. Shi­ane was part of a big team from the school suc­cess­fully ex­hibit­ing beef cat­tle and sheep.

The beef show recorded more than 50 en­tries at last week’s Nu­murkah Show.

The beef sec­tion has bounced back af­ter a de­lib­er­ate at­tempt to lift num­bers at the mid­week show.

Judge Peter Falls from Finley re­marked on the qual­ity of ex­hibits and said the in­creased in­ter­est was a re­sult of ex­tra work be­ing de­voted to the event.

The weather smiled on Wed­nes­day’s show and brought out good crowds and ex­hibitor en­tries.

Nu­murkah Show So­ci­ety sec­re­tary Sue Aldridge said it was a beau­ti­ful spring day re­sult­ing in a suc­cess­ful event.

She said en­tries were up in the beef cat­tle show, strong com­pe­ti­tion was ev­i­dent in the dog show and there was great in­ter­est in the gar­den and flo­ral ex­hi­bi­tion.

Pho­tog­ra­phy en­tries lined one wall of the pavil­ion.

Some eques­trian classes were down in num­bers, and a change in for­mat for the dairy sec­tion saw a big­ger range but lim­ited com­pe­ti­tion.

‘‘We were very pleased with the over­all re­sults,’’ Ms Aldridge said.
