Welcome to Sydney Royal Easter Show 2012

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

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.

  1. 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.
