The Illawarra & Southern Branch’s Spring Fair has turned 50 with 2017 judge Laurie Chittick (Tongala Vic) adjudicating the 46 head. Cattle entries were up on last year and the number of exhibitors also increased. Nine different exhibitors came from the Bega area in the south, the Nowra region and from Denman in the north.
Judge, Laurie Chittick has the Lemon Grove Stud which originally was from Jamberoo. In Laurie’s younger days he exhibited at the Spring Fair and was involved in running this event also. Hence the reason the Branch invited him to judge the special 50th celebration day.
Beautiful weather and a large crowd of Illawarra enthusiasts including previous judges, previous Bellringer winners and also many people who helped make the spring fair 50 years strong, made the celebrations very special.
The major ribbon holders were:
Bellringer & Best Udder: Myrtleholme Empress 62 exhibited by Tom and Kyleigh Cochrane
Res Bellringer: View Mount Jaclyn 25 exhibited by Ringland Family
Jnr Champion: Wilgo Empire Ruth exhibited by Emma and Aaron Salway
Res Jnr Champ: Creighton Park Faith 2458 exhibited by Brian and Deb Parker
Lunch and after sale drinks were donated by the Illawarra and Southern Branch.
Many thanks to the large number of volunteers who all worked together to make the Spring Fair such a successful event.
