Calf-rearing returns for Ag Day

Making friends – a calf and companion at a pre-M. bovis Ag Day at Tapora School.

Calves are back in the baby animal line-up for Tapora School’s annual Ag Day show and fundraiser, which will be held this year on Saturday, September 14, from 9.50am.

Calf classes were called off last year as a result of cattle disease Mycoplasma bovis, but after consulting with local farmers, the Board of Trustees has decided to bring them back this year. However, a number of biosecurity precautions will be taken, including having calves tied up well away from each other, and entering the show ring one at a time.

As well as animal and pet parades and judging, there will be a range of food, stalls and activities, including a cake auction, art displays, home baking, a sausage and burger sizzle, and a huge bric-a-brac stall.

The always popular multi-draw raffle is back, where every $5 ticket gives purchasers the chance to win a diverse range of prizes, which this year includes three hours of excavator digging, holiday accommodation and vouchers for local businesses.

For more information and raffle ticket pre-sales, contact the school office on 422 1835.
