What the 2009 Bingara Show lacked in sideshows, it made up for in cattle and horses.
Show organisers were able to secure a couple of sideshows for the show, and a Kids’ corner kept smaller children amused.
The beef cattle section attracted 79 entries representing 12 breeds.
Equestrian events were also well supported.
Entries in the wool section were down a little, although sheep seemed to maintain the same numbers and quality as in previous years.
Pets were again popular, with judges faced with some very difficult decisions.
Cooking was down a little in the Pavilion, but this was countered by strong entries in Art, photography and Handicraft.
There was strong competition in the flower, and the vegetable sections, and needlework continues to be a popular with both exhibitors and the public.
The Campdraft event, held over two days attracted an excellent number of competitors, and was also popular with spectators.
Lydia Munro rode the mechanical bull at the Bingara Show like a champion.
The bull was very popular,particularly with junior show-goers.
The Rodeo, held on Sunday, attracted probably the largest crowd at the show.
A highlight of the show, particularly for younger people, was the mechanical bull.
On Saturday afternoon, youngsters lined up to try riding the ‘bull’, with varying degrees of success.
In the evening, the adults were given a turn at mechanical bull riding. Several Bingara Bullets reportedly tried to ride the bull, which inhibited their ability to walk easily the next day.
Results of all sections of the show will be uploaded to the Show Society site as soon as they come to hand.
