Plenty to see at 108th Cummins Show

The Cummins Agricultural and Horticultural Society is looking forward to providing hands-on experiences, and showcasing its pavilion upgrade at the 108th Cummins Show on Saturday.

There is plenty for livestock lovers including the inaugural EP Shows Association Led Steer Competition involving teams made up of local students, close to 100 fleeces for the wool show, which will raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and the semi-final and final of the inaugural Bendigo Bank Eyre Peninsula Speed Sheering Competition.

Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey will officially open the new pavilion roof, which was made possible through a federal government grant.

"We're happy to see the Member for Grey's an important upgrade for the showgrounds," society president Raymond Whillas said.

Mr Whillas said the show was building on last year's success with more of the community wanting to be involved.

People can get a close look at examples of local crops with a trial site organised by Carr's Seeds, Pasture Genetics and Heritage Seeds that has four sessions, each running twice.

An agriculture marquee will also allow people to have a look at different ag suppliers including wool and grain marketers and animal health companies.

The Cummins Mens Shed is also getting involved by providing a train service with the "Cummins Train Station" located near the pavilion.

Also look out for the poultry and pigeon displays and horses on show in the horse arena throughout the day, including team penning demonstrations from 6.30pm.

There are plenty of activities for children including bouncy castles, archery tag and face painting.
