THE 2019 Bundarra Show will jump from the chute in a big way with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today announcing a $5,200 State Government grant to support the show’s Friday night rodeo.

 

Mr Marshall said the rodeo will be a fantastic way for the community to kick off and celebrate Bundarra’s 95th Show.

 

“The Bundarra Show is such an iconic community event and I’m pleased to be able to support the committee with the cost of hosting its opening night rodeo,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“Despite the tough drought conditions as a community we have so much to be proud of as farmers and I think next year’s show will be a great opportunity for locals to take some time off the farm, come into town and catch up with friends and family.

 

“Many local show societies are struggling to get the exhibits and sponsorship needed to run their annual events and that’s why I have been working with them individually to ensure they have what they need to allow the show to go on.

 

“Bundarra Show committee led by President Matt Devlin has some big ideas to make next year a success and I congratulate him and his team for working hard to lock in a full schedule of events on Friday, 31 January and Saturday, 1 February.”

 

President Matt Devlin said next year’s event would also host a showcase of the region’s prime Hereford cattle.

 

“I want to thank Adam for his support year on year for our little show which means so much to the Bundarra community,” Mr Devlin said.

 

“Bundarra Show is free to attend so the committee makes no money on the gate which makes it difficult to cover the costs of entertainment and the rodeo.

 

“With the drought taking a toll on local agricultural produce we are expecting nominations to be down across the exhibits, that’s why next year we will be holding a Hereford cattle showcase in the hope of getting strong cattle numbers on the parade ground.”
