Considered to be an opportunity to view some of the best show cattle in eastern Australia, the Lismore Show’s National Dairy Spectacular takes place today and tomorrow at Lismore Showground.
The free pre-show event has secured three of the best cattle judges and offers prize money up to $30,000.
Today sees a youth program from 9.30am with schools and students encouraged to participate. Junior judging and junior parading are also held today along with the heifer classes in all breeds.
Tomorrow sees the milk and dry classes and the Interbreeds. Breeds competing include Jerseys, Illawarras, Holsteins, Brown Swiss, Guernsey and Ayrshires.
‘The community get the opportunity to see the calibre of cattle we have in the region and for our farmers it’s a social thing – they share knowledge and meet up with old friends,’ said chief dairy steward Nola Wyatt.
