Patron’s Message

As the Society prepares for the 2019 show we remember the men and women of the Mount Larcom area who had the foresight in 1919 to start an Agricultural Show – so this year is 100 years since that historical event, the years in between have not been easy, and for several years a show was not held owing to WW1 and the Depression of the 30’s, but this year will be the 80th year a show has been held.  We commend those early pioneers for the work they put in to establish this show.  I know it would not have been easy and it does not seem to be getting any easier, so I congratulate the present Committee for their efforts in staging the 2019 Show.

Jean Peters and Mrs Kym Hannant
Patron and Life Members of the Society

Our sincere thank you to all generous donors and sponsors, and to those who give many hours of voluntary work. Thank you also to the judges and exhibitors for their contributions and support. A small committee runs the Mt Larcom Show and help in any form is always greatly appreciated.

Mount Larcom Show Society sincerely thanks our sponsors for the poultry section

Patron’s Message

As the Society prepares for the 2019 show we remember the men and women of the Mount Larcom area who had the foresight in 1919 to start an Agricultural Show – so this year is 100 years since that historical event, the years in between have not been easy, and for several years a show was not held owing to WW1 and the Depression of the 30’s, but this year will be the 80th year a show has been held.  We commend those early pioneers for the work they put in to establish this show.  I know it would not have been easy and it does not seem to be getting any easier, so I congratulate the present Committee for their efforts in staging the 2019 Show.

Attention all exhibitors:

All livestock owners and competitors should be aware that you have a biosecurity obligation to take all reasonable steps to ensure your activities do not spread pests, disease or contaminants. Animals with signs of illness are not to be brought on to the Showgrounds.

Horse and donkey exhibitors will need to hand in a written copy of a Horse Health Declaration including the Property Identification Number (PIC ) of the horses origin prior to entry to the showgrounds.  These copies will be kept for two years.

Cattle exhibitors will present a copy of their Waybill or NVD form to the Beef Section Manager on arrival at the Beef Section for NLIS reading.

Patron’s Message

As the Society prepares for the 2019 show we remember the men and women of the Mount Larcom area who had the foresight in 1919 to start an Agricultural Show – so this year is 100 years since that historical event, the years in between have not been easy, and for several years a show was not held owing to WW1 and the Depression of the 30’s, but this year will be the 80th year a show has been held. We commend those early pioneers for the work they put in to establish this show. I know it would not have been easy and it does not seem to be getting any easier, so I congratulate the present Committee for their efforts in staging the 2019 Show.
