Farmyard animals take over QEII Square for AgFest

03 August 2016

Farmyard animals will take over QEII Square on Saturday 13 August, 10.00am to 2.00pm for AgFest - an event to celebrate our region's agricultural products, produce and people.

AgFest coincides with the arrival of 900 lamb industry delegates in Albury for LambEx - the 2016 Australian Lamb Expo.

Come to AgFest and see puppy training for working dogs, sheep dog trials, shearing demonstrations, wool classing, bush dancing, hear country music by Danny Phegan and LONGREACH, enjoy pony rides, fresh produce, craft beers and a "Lamb-BQ".

Deputy Mayor Cr David Thurley said AgFest was free and would be a great event for the whole family.

"We live in a wonderful part of the world that produces outstanding agricultural produce and this will be a chance for us all to learn more and celebrate that," he said.

Sandstock Working Kelpies will be in action at AgFest and owners Beth and Peter Sandral said "we are looking forward to seeing farmers and people who work on the land recognised and celebrated in this way.

"We know people will be impressed by our working dogs in action at AgFest. Hopefully we can also help out with some training pointers."
