Foster shows its best

CROWDS of people flocked to Foster ShowgroundS on Saturday for the annual Foster and District Agricultural Show.

Show secretary Denis O’Neill said there was a huge variety of animals this year, including donkeys, alpacas, rabbits and Clydesdales.

He said the grand parade was a highlight of the show, with the showgirls riding in vintage cars, followed by cattle, donkeys and Clydesdales.

“It looked very stately and grand, and made a nice spectacle,” he said.

The South Gippsland branch of Gippsland Historical Automobile Club had a varied display of vehicles and Len Cook brought along five vintage tractors of the 1950s and ’60s.

The grand parade was a feature with and the 11 stalls of the Avenue of Agriculture was well attended, with displays based around trout, rabbits, truffles, fruit, goats and mountain peppers.

Entries for the donkey class came from as far as Colac, the dog trials were well contested, as were the dairy and beef cattle.

“The exhibit shed was ablaze with hundreds of entries, with plenty in the farm produce and vegies,” Mr O’Neill said.

“The dahlias and roses made a splendid display and the crafts shelves were full.”
