Why show? Firstly showing
isnt for every one, but if you have a majestic breed like the
Highland it is a great way to promote your chosen breed and Fold.
Personally I enjoy the banter and catching up with friends that
you may only see once a year as well as making new ones.
We decided to start showing for the above reason many years ago and have attended countless number of shows throughout Australia and my son has shown the cattle in Western Australia.
As said showing isnt for everybody and we have taken our cattle to a Beer Garden to celebrate Robbie Burns Birthday, Medieval Fairs at Carrick Hill, Gumeracha, Paracombe and Mount Gambia as well as attending the Viking Festival at Victor Harbor. Highland Pipes and Drums competitions at Greenock and Mount Barker. Displays in my humble opinon are entertaining with out the pressure of displaying under a judge.
As for showing so of the venues and places we have shown over the years include:
Gawler, Kapunda, Angaston, Balaklava, Strathalbyn, Mount Pleasent, Mannum, Jamestown, as well as showing at the National Highland cattle society shows in Victoria, NSW and Western Australia.
One of the easiest shows to participate in especially if you are a good photographer in the annual Virtual Highland Cattle Show
Each show is different and our choosen breed is always an attraction to the public.
The Australian Highland Cattle Society Host a National Show across three states including South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales attracting cattle and exhibitors from across Australia
To start with your cattle
must be registered with the Australian Highland Cattle Society
except for Steers in Carcass competitions.
