Brian Fish and his team of mighty bullocks have long been a crowd favourite at our show. We’re delighted to say Brian will be taking to our main arena for two demonstrations again in 2024.
The traditional art of bullock training and leading is becoming a lost one. Brian’s demonstrations are as informative as they are impressive, as he manoeuvres these animals weighing more than a car, in unison, to show traditional ways of farming that well outdate vehicles or machinery.
Paddock to Plate – Bream Creek Dairy
For this year’s show our Paddock to Plate stage is set to feature a diverse mix of local producers, cooks, butchers and more as they highlight the region and the incredible things that they do. In these sessions you’ll see live demonstrations and hear from the experts who will share what it takes to create world class, Tasmanian products.
One session that we know will be a crowd favourite, is from long-time supporters of our show, The Bream Creek Dairy.
At this generational family farm, sixty years of careful breeding has resulted in gentle natured Holstein Fresian cows.
Jack will discuss the history behind the award winning ‘dairy by the sea’ and the finer points of quality milk and cheese production.
What will your technique be, underarm or overarm? Win yourself a new pair of boots thanks to @Blundstone in our ever popular ‘Blunnie toss’!
From 11am there’ll be under 16 boy & girl heats, then our 16+ men & women will try their arm at getting a boot the furthest down our main arena. Be sure to get practicing now and we’ll see you on show day!
Featuring all the friendly animals that children love (and many more), our animal nursey is sure to make the whole family smile.
It’s an opportunity for people of all ages to get close and cuddly with rural animals. They may even let you take a quick selfie!
Operating all day, in our large undercover area, it’s a must visit come show day!
That’s the game plan for our competitors in the 300mm Tree Felling Tasmanian State Championships, taking place on our main arena at 1 and 2pm.
We’ve got this and a full day of competitive woodchopping for you to enjoy as part of our huge program.
