On a glorious spring day, September 9th 2020, at the Royal Adelaide Show the judging of the Illawarra Feature Breed and the Interbreed classes didn’t happen.
However, the Illawarra & RDCA Juvenile Heifer raffle was drawn.
1st Prize of Springvale Plum 63 went to ticket number 272, purchased by Eliana McIntosh from near Loxton in SA’s Riverland.
Consolation prize of 25 straws of Springvale Theo went to ticket number 739, purchased by Hannah Doecke from Woods Point.
The SA Branch would like to sincerely thank the Doecke family and Agri-Gene for donating the prizes, and all ticket sellers and purchasers for your support.
A special thank you goes to the Royal Adelaide Show’s CEO John Rothwell for being available to draw the winning tickets. Over lunch there was much reminiscing of previous shows, John gave us an update of the new developments within the showgrounds, and much conjecture was had concerning what may or may not eventuate with the Royal Show in 2021 during ‘these unprecedented times’. Meantime, sections of the 2020 RAS are going ahead online ‘virtually’ and ‘live streaming’.
