After a CWA drought appeal breakfast that donated proceeds to the Queensland drought appeal, no-one minded dodging mud puddles in the saleyard laneways as the judging and subsequent sale got underway, resulting in a very firm market.

A healthy 50 trade displays dotted the pavilions at the Clermont Showgrounds, where participants got to find out what the intriguing Cowboys and Itchy Bums title for the lunchtime guest speaking spot entailed.

Conducted by local veterinary identity, Dr Alan Guilfoyle, with Sunshine Coast-based public health vet, Dr Guy Weerasinghe and Clermont doctor, Sara McLay, it was opened with a poem by John Burnett that asked the question, could the pet pooch give you parvovirus.

Following that, presentations were made to the day’s winners, including the Isaac Regional Council trophy and $5000 for the grand champion exhibit to the Finger family, Hillview, Clermont for their 100-day grainfed bullocks.
