There will be plenty of take home information available for new and established breeders and a lucky gate prize of Merial cattle drench or product – everyone who walks through the gate is automatically in the draw for this prize.
Another draw card will be a prize donated by Landmark Ballarat in the Guess the Bulls Weight competition. Visitors can enjoy the challenge of guessing the weights of not one, but three bulls that are displayed on the day. It is not an easy challenge, even for those with a good eye for cattle weights.
