Kyogle hosting one of Australia’s richest vealer shows
LAST year an outbreak of ticks caused the cancellation of the Norco Rural and Gold Mix Beef Bonanza.
But it's back this year and will be held at the Kyogle Showground on April 14.
With more than $5000 in prizes, this event is now one of the richest vealer shows in Australia and it has become one of the key events in the Northern Rivers Beef Producers calendars.
All money raised through the event is injected back into the Kyogle Showground to be used for much-needed repairs to and replacement of buildings, fencing and yards.
The classes range from a pen of three vealers 200kg through to 350kg, single vealer 351kg and over, pen of four replacement heifers, led steer class and junior paraders.
The replacement heifers class has grown since the inception of the show and has become a focal point of the event, with the best heifers in the region being exhibited.
The 2014 event had over 100 heifers on show and everyone is looking forward to seeing what it will grow to this year.
