A very exciting time in the Agriculture calendar is upon us. Over the next two weeks, all the tireless work from the Sheep and Cattle Scholarship teams from the last three terms will be put in the spotlight as they represent the College at the Royal Agricultural Societies’ Melbourne Show.
Approximately 40 Students will be venturing to the showgrounds to pamper, groom and quaff their sheep and cattle before being judged on their handling abilities as well as the presentation of their animals in the show ring.
According to various “experts” in the show arena who have seen the development of our scholarship teams, we are in with a very high probability of bringing home a box full of ribbons, which is a very exciting prospect for all at the College, particularly our burgeoning Agricultural program.
If you were looking for things to do these holidays, the scholarship students would love your support at the Show. It is a fantastic time and as a spectator, you will be greatly rewarded with the satisfaction of watching our students participate and succeed in the Show ring before the inevitable feeling of disgust having eaten too much fairy floss and donuts later in the day.
A program of events can be found on the RASV Melbourne Show website but in short, you should try to arrange your tour of the show on:
Saturday 21 September - Monday 23 September for the Sheep and Steer classes
Saturday 28 September - Monday 30 September and Tuesday 1 October to watch the Stud Cattle Team strut their stuff.
I am aware that there is some other event on in Melbourne on Saturday 28 September, however you will not be able to get anywhere near as close to the action, feel the excitement of winning and mingle with the stars as much as you will by opting to watch the Agriculture scholarship teams compete at the Melbourne Show.
