Dexter Cattle Exhibit 

TOCAL SMALL FARMS

FIELD DAY

3-5 MAY 2019

The Sydney Dexter Cattle Promotion Group attended the Tocal Field Days on Friday 3rd May, Saturday 4th May and Sunday 5th May

Despite a bit of uncertain weather on the first day and a little rain on the second day, over 22,000 people visited the Field Days

On Day One, the Dexter display was visited by several school groups who were interested in agriculture and livestock in particular – when speaking to the students it was obvious that many had some previous knowledge about the breed and they were able to pick up lots of further information from the material on display. 

Chris Clark and others were impressed with both the level of student interest and knowledge from the visiting school groups

On Day Two and Three there was a lot of interest from family groups. The cut out cow proved a hit with children and provided a great opportunity for family photographs. What better way to make sure people are reminded of Dexter cattle for years to come.

On each of the three Days the Field Day Organisers conducted a public lecture in the Cattle Display Area.

Don Williams provided an insight into the Dexter Breed outlining the history, features and advantages of the Breed – these proved popular with the visiting crowds and were by far the best lectures given in the cattle section of the Field Days

The new tear-drop banner made was certainly visible and helped to draw people to the Dexter exhibit.

Councillor Chris Clark from the North Coast Group attended, as did Ron & Libby Brown from the Manning Valley Group.

Sydney Group members in attendance were Rob Allen , Robyn  & Garry Herring, Jackie & Don Williams

Sydney Group thanks Don & Jackie Williams for providing a cow and her steer calf, and Stephen Young for providing his bull for display.
