Expo draws farmers

THE Annual South Gippsland Dairy Expo was buzzing with activity today (Wednesday).

Sunshine brought crowds to the Korumburra Showgrounds to see more than 130 exhibitors involved with agriculture, from farm machinery to genetics and everything in between.

Milk processing company representatives went head-to-head in a hands on milking competition with Dale Lang coming out on top for UDP.

Kids were entertained with painting, car safety lessons and other fun stuff in Sanders Pavilion. In the Show Pavilion it was all about the ladies with craft jewellery and much more.

Paul Macphail from Beloka Kelpie Stud showed off with his well trained working dogs in the afternoon and let kids play with his beautiful puppies.

Exhibitors were impressed with the number of genuine enquiries they received and praised the organisers, Strzelecki Lions Club.

Check out The Star’s photos of the hands on milking competition, exhibitors tents and general fun from around the expo today and don’t forget to go and check out the expo as it continues tomorrow (Thursday).
