Art4agriculture has arrived at the Sydney Royal Easter Show twelves hours before show time and wow is there movement at the station
Here are some highlights from my quick visit to check on the Archies to see if they were well fed and watered
Firstly I passed through the beef cattle pavilion with my eyes wide open for the Camden Haven High team. I ran into Annie who proudly showed off their heifer and steer and I look forward to meeting the rest of the team tomorrow. Good luck guys
Then I made my way through the rest of the beef cattle sheds. I read somewhere there are over 900 recognised breeds of cattle in the world. Well there are plenty of them at the show I can assure you.
Including these cuties
And my favourites the Belted Galloways
and some Red Poll Herefords and some Charolais and Lowlines
You can read all about the Red Meat industry in Australia here
Then I spotted the Archies. How fine do they look taking centre stage in the new look Food Farm
Alexander Rafferty’s web page is looking awesome on the big plasma screen
Then there was Moobix and Patti all ready to do their thing at the Meat and Livestock stand
Patti will be showcasing the IBeef app which has been designed to deliver the perfect steak and can be downloaded here
Whilst I was there I ran into Kirsty who is also working with Aussie Apples
Make sure you take the Aussie Apples challenge when you visit the Food Farm
Make sure you get your passport stamp on the Animal Walk in the Food Farm here
Then it was off to have a quick look at the District Exhibits and boy was it a hive of activity
A lot of people will be working hard into the night on this.
And then finally the Junior District Exhibits which I get to judge in the morning and I was impressed.
Its not going to be easy
See what I mean!!!
What an exciting finale for all that hard work and dedication Lynne. Thank you for your passionate desire to inspire the young and bridge the gap between producers and consumers. We know there is a gap, but I love the way you treat it like a bridge to transverse, not an impossible chasm to conquer!
Our kids have come out with their finest and if I was a farmer walking through that pavilion, I would feel very proud.
Have a great Easter show Lynne and I hope you keep doing what you do so beautifuly.
What gorgeous white brahman cows! Enjoy the Archies. I’m sure there are lots of inspiring young artists to choose from.
