Foster and District Agricultural Show

Saturday 25 February 2012
8:00am - 4:00pm

Location: Foster Show Grounds / Oval | Category: Show

More than 100 years after it began, the Foster Show is still going strong.

Among the highlights of the 2012 Foster and District Agricultural Show will be a working dogs demonstration by Welshpool’s Paul MacPhail and his superbly trained kelpies. They will be working sheep and are always worth a look.

The show society is also hopeful of having donkeys at the show again in 2012. They have proved a crowd pleaser in previous years.

Pigs will be on show for the first time for many years, though they will not be judged.

“Many years ago lots of dairy farmers used to keep pigs, but this is no longer the case. However, in recent years there has been a renewed interest in rare breeds,” said Show President Noel Afflitto.

The show society is keen to hear from anyone who has ideas for the Foster Show – or a firm opinion on what date it should be held (from 2013). Telephone the secretary, Denis O’Neil on (0425) 565 649 if you have a contribution to make, or come along to the meeting on October 18.
