MOVING the Cobargo show to a Saturday and Sunday has been a tremendous success, the AP&H Society president Kevin Allen said.
Previously the show had been on the Friday and Saturday.
“Our gate takings for Saturday were higher than last year,” he said.
Mr Allen thanked his committee, particularly secretary Lynne Parr, and all the willing workers.
“I also thank the sponsors without whom we wouldn’t be able to put on the show and they have been particularly generous this year.”
Exhibits in the pavilion were not only up but were of a very high standard, despite the weather.
Dairy and beef cattle entries were also up and Mr Allen said the difference in beef cattle entries was quite remarkable and this was partly due to the agricultural course at Narooma High School with the students entering a number of their cattle.
Both the dairy judge Andrew Cullen and the beef cattle judge Max Atkins said the quality of entries were of an extremely high standard.
A Holstein, Smallridge Sanchez Snow exhibited by Smallridge Holsteins won the supreme champion dairy cow of the show, with White Lakes Daisy Dust exhibited by Craig Corby the supreme beef animal of the show.
James Burgess won the bird of the show in the poultry section.
In the pavilion Vashti Herbert won the prestigious Lee and Nguyen Perpetual Trophy for the Youth highest point-score.
The Tiny Tot of The Show was Hazel Robinson of Coolagolite, while the Baby of the Show was Dakota Rees of Beauty Point.
The punishing heat on Saturday did nothing to deter crowds and the stands were filled with spectators enjoying equestrian events, steer riding and the very entertaining junior rodeo.
Mr Allen also praised the quality of entries in both dairy and beef cattle.
“We had a record number of beef cattle entries, we may need to think about making the ring bigger next year,” he said.
The official opening of the 116th Cobargo Show at 2.30pm was almost stopped as a storm rolled in and lightening became the backdrop to speeches by Mr Allen and Member for Bega Andrew Constance.
Former Bega Valley Shire mayor Tony Allen officially opened the show.
The Cobargo local told the crowd of his proud association with the show and his earliest memories of the exhibiting when he was just six years old.
The storms that affected other areas of the Bega Valley didn’t trouble show proceedings and spectators enjoyed an afternoon of dog jumping and motorbike obstacle races.
The Sunday program included showjumping, poultry judging and heavy horses and harness events.
Later in the day, the show hosted the Cobargo Co-op camp draft and the open steer and bull rides.
“They were both great events, the bull riders are definitely a brave brunch and put on a spectacular show,” Mr Allen.
The success of the Cobargo show – both in terms of entrants and gate numbers - bodes well for the Bega Show, which begins this Friday.
The Narooma News asked kids what they enjoyed about this year’s Cobargo Show…
“I like everything. I like the cattle, the horses, the dog jumping and the smashing cars.”
Nicholas Sticotti, Tilba
“I like the horses. I came third and equal fourth in showjumping.”
Riley Whyman, Kameruka
“The horse riding, the bull riding and some of the other rides.”
Tayla Butcher, Tilba
“The bull riding and I came first today in steer riding.”
Grace Dibden, Tilba
“The horse riding. I competed in showjumping, team sorting and hack class.”
Esther Black, Brogo
Agricultural students at Cobargo Show
IT has been another successful weekend for Narooma High School agricultural students, who took home a swag of ribbons from the Cobargo Show.
The students once again showed their stud cattle to full potential bringing home two reserve champions and two firsts, three seconds and two thirds.
The students then placed in the parading and judging competitions.
With Nicole Negus taking out first place in the parading and Sam Hodge taking out the judging competition sponsored by Goldstein Park Limousin – Craig Corby for the second year in a row.
Congratulations to all students!
