Cattle compete at Agrofest

From livestock to produce, flowers to fruit trees, Queen’s Park is the place to go for Agrofest 2011.
There is also art and craft, clothes and jewellery and more on display.
Today marked the second day of the three-day agricultural festival. It featured the anticipated livestock competition which saw cows and sheep vie for the title of best in class and best in show.
There was some excitement during the cattle competitions, as handlers struggled to control the massive animals, which clearly had minds of their own. This prompted one of the judges to comment on the importance of familiarizing the animals to being handled at least six weeks prior to the competition.
The Queen’s Park Steel Shed was also transformed into an aviary with parrots, pigeons, chickens and cockatoos.
