Dairy cattle return again for Murgon show

DAIRY cattle are back for a second year in a row at the 2017 Murgon Show.

Show society president Joan Adams said before the 2016 show, dairy cattle had been absent from the show for a number of years.

"They should have never been out of here,” she said.

Ms Adams said a number of people had asked for dairy cattle to be reintroduced.

"As long as I'm here they'll be here,” she said.

Ms Adams said it was important to honour dairy cattle at the show.

"I believe dairy cattle make a lot of money in this area,” she said.

"They should be looked after and we all know that, especially now with the dairy industry crisis.”

She said numbers of cattle might be down because of three-day sickness.

"If they still have three-day sickness they won't be able to come in, but apart from that it'll be good,” she said.

"There is something about dairy cattle you've got to like.

"You'll always go back to them.”
