aplenty at the Show, from cute and friendly to business-like and serious. Look out for special industry events such as the Adelaide Ram Sale - held on the last Friday of the Show and attracting buyers from overseas. There will be food to suit all tastes, entertainment to please all ages and, of course, showbags, carnival rides and retail options to cover all your shopping needs. The Show will be a smoke-free event this year, however there will be smoking zones at various points around the grounds providing a pleasant environment for all show-goers. Thank you again to IGA – the Show’s presenting partner – and to Channel 7 and Coca-Cola for their ongoing support as premier partners. And a big thanks to all Show sponsors, media, volunteers and, most importantly, the South Australian public for continuing to support this amazing South Australian community event. May the 2012 Show be your best yet.

For two decades, the Vandeleur family has brought their racing, water-diving pig troupe to the Show.

W

hen you think of racing animals, pigs probably aren’t the first species to spring to mind. However, the four-legged creatures have been the star of a popular racing event at the Show for the past 20 years. Tom Vandeleur from Murray Bridge family-run entertainment company MTV Promotions says he expects crowds of about 1000 at each of the six daily shows throughout this year’s Show. “I think we’ll please the crowd like we have the last 20 years, but people need to get a seat early.” Tom first came across pig-racing when performing in a Wild West show at a US livestock event 23 years ago. “I went up in the stands and had a look at the event and I thought what an excellent idea. Twenty years down the track and you still can’t fit them in at our shows – it’s just packed out all the time.” Son Michael has even trained pigs in the US and, these days, their troupe performs at agricultural shows around Australia, from Mildura to Alice Springs.

“To see these guys run is amazing,” Tom enthuses. “They’ll do that 40m-odd track in about or five six seconds. They’re pretty slick. They don’t just come out and trot around, they really get right down to it. Then, of course, we’ve got the band music beforehand and I try to wind the crowd up. It’s a real production.” The Vandeleurs will train a team of 10 pigs, each aged about 14 weeks old, a month before the Show. “They’re trained on a reward basis,” Tom says. “Once these guys break out of their boxes, the crowd noise is unbelievable, so they have to get used to all that stuff.” The family also lay claim to having Australia’s only diving pigs – an act that has to be seen to be believed. “They go off a ramp and dive about 4m across to the other side of a pool and into the water,” Tom enthuses. Quite the finale, indeed. Watch the pigs race, with their colourful sashes flowing behind them, as well as dive into the water, at the Western Entertainment Arena.

how-goers can expect even more pop, crackle and bang from the fireworks display this year.

Grant Freeman, the state manager of Howard and Sons Pyrotechnics, says: “We’ll have 11 more firing positions than usual, which means more fireworks and a totally different look. Rather than the usual fan formations, the actual design set-up will change, including there being more circular patterns. People should really come and take a look – they’ll be amazed!” Howard and Sons Pyrotechnics, established since 1922, has put on a display at the Show for about 60 years – and Grant says it remains a much-loved feature.

ant to know how milk and other dairy products wind their way onto supermarket shelves?

Sate your curiosity at the Pura Milking Barn in the Dairy Pavilion. Five sessions of the interactive dairy display, in its eighth year at the Show, will be staged daily. Organiser Jane Southwell from Yass-based Farm Animal Resource Management will run the sessions with her daughter, Kathleen Allan.

While the show is a hit with children of all ages, Jane says all are welcome to have a go at hand-milking. “A lot of grandparents come along with their grandkids and tell the most amazing stories, reconnecting with what they knew as children.” Jane says it’s a great chance to bring a little piece of country life to city visitors. “Cooking shows like MasterChef have stirred up an interest in using produce to make our meals, and the very basic element of that is: ‘Where does my food come from?’ Being able to come up, pat a cow and be able to milk it is very rewarding.” A range of cattle breeds will be on show including Jersey, Ayrshire and Illawarra varieties. The display is sponsored by Pura.

s president of the Floral Design Council of South Australia, Alethia Quick is an expert on floral art – just don’t expect to find many flowers growing in her garden.

The Adelaide Hills-based artist enjoys working with foliage and greenery and has designed her garden accordingly – the flowers she does have growing are on shrubs and trees. Alethia explains she is always able to buy beautiful flowers but it’s not as easy to buy interesting and unusual foliage. “With many of my demonstrations and workshops I use various foliages, dried plant material and sometimes succulents,” she says. An award-winning floral artist, qualified judge and demonstrator, Alethia is one of the organisers of this year’s Floral Art competition at the Royal Adelaide Show. “This is the first time that floral art is being judged for many years and it’s creating a lot of excitement.

We find the public like to do their own judging to see if they agree with the official verdict,” she says. “We also hope that our involvement in the Royal Adelaide Show encourages new members to our clubs throughout South Australia and promotes floral art to the general public.” There are ten classes in the competition, including two inspired by The Show – ‘Off the Sheep’s Back’ and ‘Roller Coaster’. The size and criteria of each class is pre-determined, with judges looking for creativity while taking into account the principles of design which include balance, proportion, rhythm, scale, unity and harmony. Elements of design, including space, line, form, pattern, texture and colour, are all considered when judging and assessing a design. According to Alethia, floral art is addictive. “I was working full-time when a newspaper article announced that the Floral Design Council was interested in forming a floral art club in our district,” she says. “Modbury and Districts Floral Art Club was formed in 1989 and I have been a member ever since.” Photography: John Kruger

coming up ROSEs Sweet perfume and a rainbow of hues will greet the senses in a show of floral beauty.

S

pring will be in full bloom with an eye-catching floral display at the Goyder Pavilion.

Renmark rose guru David Ruston and helper Danny Hoffmann will stage the visual feast during the Show’s first four days. As well as roses, other flower varieties on display will include magnolias, daffodils, blossoms, tulips, rhododendrons, sweet peas and camellias. David, who is well-known for his research into older rose varieties, will also speak about flower-arranging over the past 500 years. On the display, David, a sprightly 82, says: “I want to use flowers that people can grow themselves in their own garden for display, rather than having to buy them.” David is the founder of Ruston’s Roses. As a teenager, he began extending his father’s roseplanting on the family fruit block. The property has since been transformed into Australia’s largest rose garden and is home to the national rose collection. David, who is fresh from attending an international heritage rose conference in Japan, has been awarded the lifetime title of President Emeritus by the World Federation of Rose Societies, has presented floral displays around the world, including for Queen Elizabeth’s visit to Carrick Hill, and is behind the book, A Life With Roses. The town of Renmark even has a sculpture in his honour. Ruston’s Roses is now in the hands of David’s niece, Anne Ruston, and her husband, Richard Fewster, who is the president of the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society.


To celebrate the return of floral art and floristry to the competitive section of the Show, organisers are presenting daily floristry demos, free hands-on workshops and ‘make and take’ activities. Here are some of the highlights: Friday 7 – Monday 10 September

i See David Ruston’s magnificent floral art display

highlighting the changing styles of floral design over the years. Learn about the Floristry training offered by tafeSA, and check out students’ entries in the ‘People’s Choice’ competition. See signature floral designs by florists from all over Adelaide, and vote in the ‘People’s Choice’ competition for your chance to win a $200 voucher to spend with the florist of your choice. Take in the displays by the Iris and Ikebana Societies, the Australian Plant Society and the Cactus and Succulent Society of SA. Adelaide Hills growers who supply cut flowers to florists across Australia will present a stunning display of liliums, spray carnations, alstroemeria, chrysanthemums and Australian natives.

love of flowers isn’t the only thing that tafeSA floristry students Gillian Anderson and Rebecca Allen share in common. Both women have taken the first step toward a dramatic career change, studying the nationally recognised Certificate 2 in Floristry one day per week whilst holding down very different day-jobs. For Rebecca Allen, who works in an automotive workshop, the six-month floristry course – now available free to all South Australian residents over 16 – was a long-held dream. “Tea Tree Gully tafeSA has a big sign advertising the course and it spoke to me for three or four years before I got the courage to apply,” she says. “I love the course – it provides a release and is so different to what I do during the week. “It’s been an exciting experience – it’s woken up a part of me that I didn’t even know existed.” Gillian Anderson, a contract writer and editor, says the course has challenged her to think in a very different way. “I usually work in a more abstract way with words but have always wanted to do something visual and creative,” says Gillian. “I just love the course. Flowers are so naturally beautiful and working with my hands is appealing – I have to focus on what I’m doing in a really different way than what I’m used to.” Though both women favour contemporary floral designs, they say the course – which encompasses

practical and theoretical components – has opened their eyes to the wide range of floristry styles and flowers available. “I have become really fond of roses and anthuriums, however, my appreciation of flowers has grown so that when I’m faced with the decision of what to work with, it’s kind of like looking at the menu of your favourite restaurant – everything looks exciting and tempting,” says Rebecca. Gillian agrees: “I enjoy working with all flowers but I love lilies and orchids in all their varieties. And I enjoy working in a contemporary style as it provides an opportunity to combine colours and textures in interesting ways.” Looking ahead, both Gillian and Rebecca are hoping to go onto study the Certificate 3 in Floristry, which will qualify them as florists. While Gillian would like one day to work with florists to develop quality training materials, Rebecca is planning to combine two loves – floristry and chocolate making.

Flower growers show latest releases South Australia’s major flower growers – Kidman Flower Co, Jong’s Flowers and Blumberg Flowers – will be presenting a stunning display at this year’s Show featuring the latest flower releases.

R

enowned for supplying top-quality product throughout Australia, all three businesses are owned by South Australian families with all flowers grown in the Adelaide Hills. Angela Kidman, who runs the Balhannah-based Kidman Flower Co. with her husband, Des, and her three young children, said the Show display would showcase how colourful and beautiful native flowers can be. “I want to show people who may not be familiar with natives how classic, vibrant, fresh and contemporary they can be, and to hopefully encourage people to be more adventurous with native flowers,” she says. “For example, they can be mixed in with tropical or traditional flowers for something a bit different and longer lasting. “Our Show display is also a great way of educating people about how little chemicals, water and fossil fuel is used to grow native flowers in the Adelaide Hills.”

According to Angela, Kidman Flower Co. mostly grows protea and leucadendron, with smaller crops of kangaroo paw, eucalyptus tetragona, thryptamine and geraldton wax flower. They sell most of their product to Brisbane and Sydney wholesale markets, and to the public via shed door sales, selected greengrocers and at the monthly Stirling Market. Angela, who will also be selling flowers at the Show, will be running flower arranging classes on September 8 and 9 for both children and adults.

Food will include sandwiches, wraps and Vili’s pastries, and there will be a sausage sizzle each day between 4pm and 8pm. Thomas Cooper founded Coopers Brewery in 1862. Thomas’ sons continued the brewing tradition into the 20th century at the Coopers Brewery in Leabrook. Despite two World Wars, the Depression and prohibition challenges, the Cooper family continued to grow the business, installing a new bottling line in 1957 capable of answering the Australia-wide demand for Coopers. Export and home brew packs followed. In 2001, having outgrown its Leabrook home of 130 years, Coopers opened its state-of-the-art brewery at Regency Park. Despite efforts from overseas players to acquire Coopers in 2005, the brewery remains steadfastly Australian-owned to this day. Find the Thomas Cooper Bar at the south-west mound on the Main Arena. It’s open daily from 11.30am to 9.30pm, with live music from 4pm to 7pm.

reece is the feature country of the Royal Adelaide Show’s cookery competition in 2012.

It is the second time the Show has had a multicultural food category, kicking off with Latvia last year. One of the aims of the cookery competition, which attracts entrants from around South Australia, is to educate people about all types of cuisine and showcase the state’s diverse communities. Helen Haltis, the state president of OEEGA, the Organisation of Hellene and Hellene-Cypriot Women of Australia, said her members will keenly take part. “We’re all about keeping our culture and our language alive – and food and handicraft is a good way to keep that culture happening.” Committee member Esta Antoniadis contacted the Show about featuring Greece and got the go ahead this year. Greek is the second most spoken language other than English in Adelaide, after Italian.

In the Hellenic cook-off, entrants will compete in an array of sweet and savoury dishes, including kourambiedes and melomakarona. “Kourambiedes – almond cookies, dusted in icing sugar – and melomakarona – honey‐soaked cookies, often made with walnuts – scream Christmas loud and clear to Greeks,” Helen enthuses, “just as gingerbread or fruitcake do for others.”

hard‐boiled egg inserted at one end or in the middle, and then baked. It’s beautiful to look at and delicious to eat!”

Another category will be spoon sweets, or sweet preserves. “They can be made from almost any fruit, though sour and bitter fruits are especially prized,” Helen explains. “Spoon sweets are usually offered to guests, served with a teaspoon on a small, glass plate, as a gesture of hospitality, with Greek coffee and water.”

Of the latter, Helen says: “This is one of the classics of Greek cuisine. The filling of chopped spinach, feta cheese – sometimes in combination with ricotta cheese – onions or scallions, egg and seasoning is wrapped or layered in filo pastry. It is mostly eaten as a snack in Greece.”

Another dish being contested will be tsoureki. “This is a traditional Easter bread, served in Greece, to break the Lenten fast,” Helen says. “It is traditionally braided, with a red‐dyed,

Other specialties on show will include diples (a dessert usually served at weddings), dolmades (grape leave parcels, stuffed with rice, pine nuts, herbs and seasoning), Kalamata olives (named after the Greek city of Kalamata), and spanakopites.

As well as the dishes being ex hibited at the Goyder Pavilion there will be a national displa y, featuring ico nic items like worry bead s, Greek coffee and ouzo.

uccess at last year’s Royal Adelaide Show has brought with it new business for the Gumshire pig stud, run by Michael and Margaret Blenkiron and their son Shaun, with the help of other son Matthew. The Barossa-based piggery took out several champion, first and second place ribbons at the 2011 Show, and their large white boar Gumshire Gladiator took out every title he was eligible for, bar one, including Champion Large White Boar, Junior Champion All Breeds and Best of Breed Large White. “2011 was a breakthrough year for Gumshire,” says Michael. “When our eldest son, Shaun, started showing pigs at the Show in 2006 we were the new kids on the block, going up against experienced operators who had been at it for years.

length and ability to provide balance to the piggery. “Landrace are also good mums, but they can be a bit sulky,” jokes Michael, who has worked with pigs for 34 years. “All our pigs are run in eco-shelters which are strawbased, which provide room for the pigs to run around without being contained.” The Blenkirons have developed a strong trade selling their breeding females and males to fellow pig producers. In addition, they supply quality pork and bacon to several wholesale and retail outlets, including Austral Meats, Gulflands Meats and the Mount Pleasant Butcher, who also sells Gumshire pork at the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market. This year the family will be taking about a dozen pigs to the Royal Show, half of which will be Landrace. “We always go to the Show,” says Michael, who has volunteered as a steward in the pig section for the past ten years. “It’s a big week but it’s good to catch up with people in the industry – a lot of us don’t see each other for 12 months, so the Show is really important.

“Over time we have learnt what is needed to produce winning animals.”

“The Show is also a great way of educating people about where their food comes from and how it is treated.

Following their success at the 2011 Royal Show, Gumshire has sold breeding stock to a number of different customers – all of whom discovered them at the Show.

“And it’s a good way of trying to encourage more young people into pig farming.”

“One pig producer bought a Landrace gilt from us at the Show and has since been back for several more. It’s been a great result.” Established 11 years ago, the 240-acre piggery currently runs 120 sows, including Landrace – this year’s feature breed in the pig section. They also run Large Whites, Duroc and Hampshire pigs, but favour Landrace for their 7 - 15 september

The

good oil

Top olive oil brands will compete at this year’s Show – with the olive branch also extended to the next generation as judges. The best extra virgin olive oils – in SA and the nation – will be judged by the Royal Adelaide Show and Olives SA this year. Judging a great extra virgin olive oil calls for skill, training and a well-developed palate. The judges will be selected from a group of people who have undergone training with some of the best tasting experts in the world so they can identify the subtle flavour differences of the oils. Olives SA board member Kent Hallett says: “Just like wines, olive oils produce flavours that vary depending on a range of factors such as variety, geography, climate, time of picking, and even the way the fruit was handled at processing and the time it took between when the fruit was picked and when it got to the processor to be crushed into olive oil.” Australia makes some of the best olive oils in the world, according to Kent. “There is a growing interest in what we are doing – and a number of schools now recognise that their students will be able to pursue a career in different aspects of the olive industry.” The Royal Adelaide Show will play its part by hosting the first ever Olive Oil Young Judges Competition in 2012. “As far as we can tell this is a world-first for the Adelaide Show,” Kent says. “A number of schools have been invited to send their students with the best palates to compete to find the best young judge.” Students will be given a range of extra virgin olive oil that have previously been judged by senior judges. The students will taste the oils and try to rank them in the correct order. The students will first train hard at school, learning how to pick the flavour variations that make a great olive oil, with the finals being held at the Royal Adelaide Show. Show visitors can also learn about South Australia’s fantastic olive oils and table olives, with tastings and cooking demonstrations held every morning in the Taste SA Pavilion throughout the Show.

How to pick a goodoil extra virgin olive Australia makes some of the best olive oil in the world, so choosing Australian is a good start. Smell the oil. It should have a delicious fruity aroma. Take a small amount of oil in your mouth and suck in air, so that it is warmed by your mouth and the lovely fruit flavours carry through to your sinuses. The flavour mix in olive oil should be fruitiness, bitterness and pepperiness. These three flavours should be in balance without any one of them overpowering the others. Strong, robust oils have a lot of each flavour. Mild oils have less, but they should be balanced regardless of how strongly they are present. A truly great olive oil will have a range of subtle fruit flavours that remind you of other tastes like citrus, tomato or even banana. by Kent Hallett, Olives SA

Gingerbread farm houses are a class in the Open Section of cake decorating at this year’s Royal Adelaide Show. Margaret Baughan, a life member of the Cake Decorators Association of South Australia and the present judging convenor, says: “We nearly always have a gingerbread class, but this time it’s a farmhouse to celebrate the Australian Year of the Farmer. It should be a big drawcard for the public.” Gingerbread houses became popular in Germany after the Brothers Grimm published the fairy-tale, Hansel and Gretel, in the 19th century. Early German settlers brought the tradition to the US. The desserts are known to be adorned with candy roofs and sugar icicles. At the Show, the gingerbread competition is open to entrants of all ages. “You can do what you like with your entry,” Margaret enthuses. “However, it does have to be a house made from gingerbread, using handwork only, and presented on a board of a maximum of 45cm square. All decorations must be edible, and commercial sweets are allowed.”

home-style kitchen will be part of the dairy cattle display at the Show this year. The Pacitti family, who own the Misty Brae Holstein stud, will again set up “house” in the Dairy pavilion, as they have done for the past nine years. “We’re there for a week, so we like to have a few creature comforts, like a television, oven and fridge,” breeder Gino Pacitti says. “It’s a nice area where we can entertain other members of the dairy industry. The public can also see the Misty Brae colourcoordinated red, black and white kitchen.”

from the environment and ‘brae’ is a Scottish word for hills.” Gino says the Holsteins fit particularly well with this part of South Australia. “Holsteins are better suited to the rolling hills and the cooler climate, being largerframed, robust animals, suitable for walking long distances.” He adds: “They’re the most popular breed in Australia.”

Holsteins are the feature breed at this year’s Show and the Pacittis have 600 head of the dairy cattle. Their stud at Hindmarsh Tiers, in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, is run by Gino, his wife, Mandy, and their sons, Ash and Andrew.

Gino, who is vice-president of the state branch of Holstein Australia and president of the Registered Dairy Cattle Association SA, says the breed’s productivity is key. “Holsteins produce more volume in terms of litres per animal, with the average Holstein cow producing about 8000L. The butterfat/protein component might not be as high as the Jerseys or the Ayrshires, but they’re better in terms of volume.”

“My family’s been in the dairy industry since 1964, and in 2001, we undertook a stud-breeding program,” Gino says. “Misty Brae is a name I developed because of where the farm is situated. It’s often foggy, cold and wet, so the ‘misty’ comes

The Pacittis have had success showing their cattle at shows in the Fleurieu, Adelaide Hills, Mount Gambier and Adelaide. “Most years, we have received ribbons for our cattle at these shows,” Gino says. “At the Royal Adelaide Show, we’ve had reserve champion and

individual class winners, so we’re holding our own. The ultimate would be to win champion cow. We’ve gotten close, but haven’t quite received that honour yet.” Among the prizes in the dairy cattle classes this year is $1000 being offered by the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of SA and the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria if the winner of the senior champion Holstein female in Adelaide also wins the same award in Melbourne. For Adelaide Show visitors, Gino says it is set to be a fantastic display. “People are very welcome to venture through the dairy sheds, have a look and chat to the exhibitors.” See the Holstein being judged on Tuesday September 11 in the Dairy Cattle Pavilion.

i There are many dairy cattle breeds in Oz, but

the main ones are Holstein Friesian, Jersey and Aussie Red.

i Holsteins came from the Netherlands originally, but

many of the breeding animals are now from the US.

i The animals are mainly black and white. i Holstein cows are the most popular breed globally. Of Australia’s 1.7 million dairy cows, 1.4 million of them are Holsteins. Victoria has the most in the nation.

i Holstein cows produce large quantities of milk –

some 10,000 litres a year, equivalent to 14 two-litre cartons every day.

Rottweilers

a noble animal Dubbed “dark guardians”, the black-and-tan canines will be the feature breed at this year’s dog competition. Photography: John Kruger

L

oyalty is a word that best sums up Rottweilers, according to Vic Holder, the president of the Rottweiler Club of SA. The pooches will be the feature breed at the Show’s dog contest in 2012.

For those thinking of adding a Rottweiler to their family, Vic says, it is important to be educated about the breed, and when ready to purchase, to contact the Rottweiler Club of SA.

Vic, who also breeds the canines under Valstam Rottweilers, says they’re a very loyal, protective breed with guard instincts. “Most of my puppies go to family homes as pets. They will follow you from room to room. In fact, they’d follow you to the end of the Earth – they’re awesome!”

The breed actually originated in the German town of Rottweil, during the 17th century. “The butchers of Rottweil realised their great potential in two ways: as protectors of themselves and their livestock and as herders of exceptional quality,” Vic explains. “From this time on, they have retained their placid reliability for work and play and their deserved nickname, ‘dark guardian’.”

Vic and wife Leeza bought their first Rottweiler in 1989 and have been actively involved with the breed ever since. “Our aim is not only to breed for type and soundness, but to breed well-balanced temperaments with the characteristics that this breed is recognised for,” Vic enthuses. Despite the sometimes feared reputation of Rottweilers, he says the breed has been used as therapy dogs for seniors and people with disabilities. “It depends if you get the right temperament and this is influenced by early human contact and socialising with people and other animals. They can have temperaments that are very ‘switched on’ and active and there are others with more cute and cuddly natures.” Vic adds: “Breeding requirements for Rottweilers in Australia are among the strictest in the world. All dogs used for breeding must have health certificates to prove they don’t have hereditary problems in their hip and elbow joints, which can be affected by arthritis if the joints are not formed correctly. Rottweilers must have eye and mouth certificates as proof they are free of problems in these areas as well.” 7 - 15 september

2012

While Valstam has won sashes for their dogs at specialty shows, including best open female, reserve challenge bitch and best male baby puppy in Victoria earlier this year, this is the first time they will exhibit at the Royal Adelaide Show. Categories they’ll contest in are open bitch, intermediate bitch, female puppy and male puppy. Key characteristics the breed will be judged on at the Show include dark eyes, dark mouth pigmentation, strong bones, markings, ear set, overall impression, and movement. There is a $1000 cash prize for the best of breed up for grabs and Sweden’s Gerard O’Shea will be a special judge. “It’s definitely a first in Australia to run a specialty event for Rottweilers at the Show,” Vic enthuses. “I think the spectators will get a real buzz out of it.” Rottweiler judging will take place at the Dog Pavilion on Friday, September 14.

Visitors to the Goyder Pavilion are in for a visual treat this year, with hundreds of artworks on display as part of the Royal Adelaide Show Art Purchase Exhibition.

A

ttracting close to 300 entries in 2011, the competition is one of the biggest in South Australia featuring works by professional and amateur artists. Jack Condous, convenor for the exhibition has used Friends of the South Australian School of Art to recruit stewards, volunteers and students studying visual arts and design to prepare and present the exhibition. Here we meet some of the artists involved.

bought one for their permanent collection. I have also been chosen to exhibit in Melbourne and sold one of my works over there.” Kimberley is entering the Adelaide Art Purchase Exhibition at the Royal Show for the first time in 2012. “I want people to see the great work that artists with an intellectual disability make,” she says. Regarding The Show, Kimberley lists the carousel as a favourite when she was younger.

“I like my work to be happy, colourful and to cheer people up.”

“I like to get some showbags, especially Beanie Kids! And I like the FruChocs bag!”

Kimberley attends the Tutti Visual Arts Program for artists with an intellectual disability three days per week.

For more information on the Tutti Visual Arts program visit www.tutti.org.au

“At Tutti I have been involved in many exhibitions,” she says. “This year I had a joint exhibition for the Adelaide Fringe Festival with another Tutti artist, Scott Pyle, at the Flinders Medical Centre as part of their Arts and Health program.

A

finalist in the 2012 Waterhouse National History Art Prize, Hugh Adamson has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember. “I trained as a secondary art teacher at Western Teachers College and the South Australian School of Art, and worked as a teacher for 16 years before setting up a small business with my wife, Yvonne, measuring and drawing up houses for the real estate industry,” says Hugh. He says he started taking art more seriously around eight years ago, and now regularly exhibits at galleries in Adelaide and during the SALA Festival. Most of his current paintings feature people, like a recent portrait of Maggie Beer, though he does do the occasional landscape – such as Hay Plain Dawn, his Waterhouse-nominated work, and its companion piece, Balranald Dawn. “I don’t think there is a name for my style – I try a lot of different things,” Hugh explains. “I describe my work as being ‘a little rough around the edges’ – I like to preserve some of the energy and movement in the people I depict. “People are my inspiration because of the amazing, special, individual and quirky things we do.” He enjoys exhibiting in the Royal Show Art Purchase Exhibition because of the huge audience that comes past. “It’s a great opportunity for exposure,” he says.

“The exhibition was called ‘Monsters and Fairy Tales’ and had a collection of my fairytale paintings.

“I always come away from the Show smiling. We used to go regularly when the children were small, but now we go just to see what we want to see.”

F

leurieu Peninsula-based artist Rebecca Arman loves that fact that the Royal Adelaide Show exposes art to people who don’t always go to galleries. “I love entering the Art Purchase Exhibition and visiting it each year. There is such a wide range of artist styles to see,” she says. Rebecca, who specialises in mixed media works on canvas, has enjoyed considerable success in the competition, winning the acquisitive prize for Remember Venice in 2010 and a special award for her 2009 work Happy Girl. This year, her painting Roma features on the cover of the Art Purchase Prize schedule. Working from her Carrickalinga studio, Rebecca likes experimenting with different mediums; strong colour combinations and interesting textures are hallmarks of her work. She says many of her current pieces are inspired by recent travel in Europe. “I returned to my studio determined to allow the colours, textures and images of my travels soak into layers of paint and medium.” Though now enjoying life as an artist, Rebecca found her calling relatively late – returning to study in 1991 to study a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Applied Design at tafeSA. “At the age of 31 I was widowed with four children under eight to bring up,” she says. “It took me many years to complete this course, but the experience and community of art school was a wonderful thing to me.” A long-time fan of The Show, Rebecca says it’s great to see the wonderful things that people in the community are doing – from cakes and plants to animals. “It’s good to recognise the work, talent and craftsmanship and to show children (and big children) these things.”

Attracting over 1,000 entries from throughout South Australia, the Royal Adelaide Show’s Junior Art, Craft and Design exhibition is one of the largest in Australia – if not the world.

E

xhibition organiser Gary Schulz says the works are full of fun, excitement and information – and are a valuable reflection of our culture.

“When they develop further they share what they feel about their world – indeed some even make social comments or political statements.”

“A child’s first drawings on the wall at home are usually one of the more memorable moments many of us can recall, and it’s often the first time a child has started to make ‘marks’,” says Gary.

Featuring a wide range of materials, many of the works depict young people’s views concerning the environment.

“From that time onwards most parents found it useful, and educational, to provide materials for little people to draw and paint with and to make things. “Year after year the images and models develop in their sophistication and complexity, and drawings and paintings, in particular, became a major avenue for young people to tell you about their world.” Gary encourages all show-goers to take a look at the works on display, and to consider their meaning. “All of the entries are telling us something about the world as the young artists perceive it,” he says. “The younger entrants tell us what they know about their world and the things in it, while as they get older they make steps towards a keener observation of how things really are.

“Look for examples of how fertile imaginations are impacting on the images,” says Gary. “Try to identify the works that show an increasing understanding of what things really look like, and look out for works that reflect on the multicultural nature of our society. “It’s also interesting to observe works that show where a teacher has been teaching, or where the student is studying the works of famous artists.” A keen supporter of The Show, Gary believes it is the most important cultural event in Adelaide every year. “It is a true reflection of the culture of South Australia, and the Junior Art, Craft and Design display is just part of that look into our culture.”

popular wine education sessions return in 2012

Discover Great grain the secret to

Ever wondered which wines to match with different foods?

T

hen head to one of the free wine and food education sessions held daily in the Taste SA pavilion during the Show. Presented by the National Wine Education and Training Centre (NWETC), in partnership with Food SA, the Cellar Door Experience aims to provide consumers with information about different wine styles, regional influences and food and wine matching – all in a friendly, relaxed setting. ���The atmosphere is informal and welcoming,” says organiser Marcia Burnett. “It’s an opportunity for wine consumers to gain confidence so they can be more adventurous with their future wine selections and gain interesting regional information. “Primary fruit characteristics of popular and emerging wine varietals are discussed as well as origins, regional and winemaking influences. The details of each of the wines tasted are provided on the tasting sheets including the vintage, region and winery contact details.” The 20-minute session will be conducted by NWETC wine educator Mike Coode. “Mike did a wonderful job last year of guiding people through the many different South Australian wine varieties,” says Marcia. He will be co-presenting with food representatives from Barossa Fine Foods` and B-d. Farm Paris Creek, providing important regional information and encouraging participants to visit the regions and to be more adventurous when choosing wine varieties.

Find out what it takes to grow great grains by visiting the interactive Ground to Grub exhibit.

S

how-goers who visit the pavilion get to touch, see, smell and understand the process of growing quality grain from the scientists in the lab - to the farmer in the field - to the product on the plate. Featuring interactive science-based displays focusing on plant breeding for quality grain, pests in the paddock, soils for quality grain, grain health and nutrition and general crop production, Ground to Grub aims to educate people about how South Australian farmers and scientists grow healthy, sustainable grain. RA&HS Grains and Fodder Committee Chair Andrew Hentschke says Ground to Grub – developed with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation – is popular with both children and adults.

“Teachers are also invited to bring their students through the Golden Grains Pavilion to complete a curriculum-linked worksheet on the science of grain production, which can be sent to teachers prior to the Show to assist in planning.”

The Ground to Grub pavilion is open 9am to 5pm daily.

Poll Merino fast facts

i Hornless rams have always existed, and were commonly referred to as ‘sports’.

i To develop the Poll Merino breed these were

mated with Merino ewes, resulting in a pure Merino without horns.

i The South Australian Poll Merino has evolved into a highly profitable dual-purpose sheep breed. Its success can be attributed to its productivity, reliability and adaptability.

i Poll Merinos feature a large frame size, very

good natural fertility rates, heavy and high quality wool cuts, plain bodies for easier shearing and high skin values.

i They are generally hardier and more reliable in their performance and survivability, and easily adapt into mixed farming operations.

i Almost $10,000 in prize money is up for grabs in the Poll Merino section, thanks to major sponsor, Rabobank.

i See the Poll Merinos in the feature breed exhibit

in the Stud Sheep Pavilion. The Adelaide Ram Sale is on Friday, September 14.

A

ttracting buyers from South America and New Zealand in recent years, the Adelaide Ram Sale – held on the last Friday of The Show – is a big event on any sheep breeder’s calendar. “The Adelaide Ram Sale is recognised as the number one multi-vendor sale in the nation for Poll Merino genetics,” says Tom Ashby from North Ashrose sheep stud at Gulnare in the Mid North.

ay and Play... t S ...at The S

“It attracts plenty of buyers from interstate and overseas – and Adelaide is the only Royal Show in Australia to stage a major ram sale, which makes it very relevant for the industry.”

Coming to Adelaide for the Royal Adelaide Show?

According to Tom, Poll Merinos – the feature breed in this year’s sheep competition – have driven the growth of the Adelaide Show and sale.

Make a holiday of it and stay at Adelaide Shores Resort in 2 or 3 bedroom deluxe accommodation or at the Caravan Park on a site or in a cabin.

“South Australia was the first state to adopt Poll Merinos in numbers in the 1950s and the first polls were showed in Adelaide in 1956,” he says.

“South Austrlia has some of the best Poll Merino genetics in the world.”

If the kids still have energy to burn after the Show - send them to our jumping pillows!

“Overseas there is also a move toward Poll Merinos, so it’s great they are the feature breed.” Tom, whose family has been breeding Merinos for over 100 years and Poll Merinos since 1957, says the breed was developed specifically to suit Australian conditions. “There was a call in the pastoral country to breed Merinos without horns,” he says. “Polls have a reliable performance and survivability with a big, plain body, and have become an adaptable, fertile animal.” Today, the Ashby family run 3000 Poll Merino breeding ewes and 500 Merinos on their 4,000-hectare property, 50 kilometres north of Clare. They sell 700 rams per year and also run Shorthorn cattle. The business is a true family affair, with Tom and wife Sarah running the stud in partnership with Tom’s brother Matt and his wife, Toni. Between them they have seven children – all of whom help out on the farm when they can. Tom and Matt’s parents Graham and Biddy are still involved and live on the property.

Book at www.adelaideshores.com.au

The Ashby family’s association with the Royal Adelaide Show started in 1937, when Tom’s grandfather, also Tom, began showing Merinos. In 1947 – when competition resumed after World War Two – they won their first Grand Champion ribbon. “Our family started showing Poll Merinos in 1964 and we won the Grand Champion Poll Merino Ewe in our first year,” says Tom. 2011 was also a good year for North Ashrose, the stud winning all three breeder groups in the ‘March Shorn Section’ and being named the most successful exhibitor in the Poll Merino and Merino sections. This year they will be taking 25 sheep and ten Shorthorn cattle to the Show. “The Show is a major event for us – it enables us to benchmark our sheep and cattle with other breeders,” says Tom. “All the family come down to Adelaide and the kids get involved in showing the animals.” Educating show-goers about farming is another important part of the Show, says Tom. “The interaction between the city and the country is great – the country people like telling their story and the city people get to understand what we do. “A lot of kids these days don’t know where farm produce comes from, so the Show plays a very important role in teaching them.”

Only one breed for shorthorn breeder lyn Shorthorn Cattle fast facts

i Shorthorn cattle first arrived in Australia in 1799. They were originally known as Durham cattle.

i They were widely used in bullock teams in the nineteenth century, especially in the timber industry.

i Most Shorthorns in Australia have been genetically polled.

i They have good maternal characteristics, are

free from structural faults and have excellent meat quality.

i They are often used in cross-breeding programs

with other cattle and have been used to develop several composite breeds, including Murray Grey and Santa Gertrudis.

“My family’s relationship with Shorthorn cattle goes back three generations.”

O

ne of Australia’s earliest cattle breeds, Shorthorns will be the feature breed in the beef cattle ring this year. Shorthorn cattle have been a part of Lyn Nitschke’s life for as long as she can remember. Her parents started a Shorthorn herd in Broken Hill when she was only eight years old, and her grandparents used the hardy breed in bullock trains. So attached is Lyn to Shorthorn, she brought three semi-trailer loads with her from Broken Hill to Hahndorf when she married husband John in 1969, and the Carlton herd began. “My family’s relationship with Shorthorn cattle goes back three generations,” says Lyn. “My grandparents and uncle had Shorthorn bullock teams in Broken Hill in the early 1900s. They used them the same as a tractor – for carrying wool and tank-sinking. “Power and performance are the key characteristics of the breed. This is what inspired me as a little station girl and where my love for Shorthorns began.” According to Lyn – the first woman in Australia to be president of a Shorthorn Cattle Society – Shorthorns have a good maternal and mothering ability, can stand drought conditions and have a good temperament. They’re also bred for their carcass attributes and good marbling – which they retain when cross-bred with other breeds.”

AUSTRALIAN AIR FORCE CADETS

Nowadays Lyn and John’s Carlton Shorthorn Stud, established in 1989, includes three properties totalling over 12,000 acres – Carlton Poll Shorthorns in Hahndorf, and Little Carlton and Carlton Station in Padthaway in the South East. A very successful Shorthorn stud in Australia, they currently run about 2000 head at the Hahndorf and Padthaway properties. “Our seed stock operation is based at Hahndorf, while our bull depot is located at Little Carlton,” says Lyn. “The commercial breeding herd resides on the Carlton Station property, which includes a backgrounding operation for export steers destined for overseas markets. “We were also the first in South Australia to run South African meat Merinos 1500, and exhibit these at The Show.” Lyn, an RA&HS life member, says it is a long-held tradition for Carlton Stud to exhibit at The Show. The property has experienced much success in the ring over the years, winning several Grand Champion titles in both the cattle and sheep sections, including a quinella of Grand Champion titles (Led Steer on Hoof, Senior Bull, Champion Bull and Steer) in one year. This year they’ll be bringing ten Shorthorn and ten South African Merinos to the Show. She says the feature breed status is likely to attract a strong field, including several interstate competitors. “The Show showcases the best livestock and produce

in South Australia,” says Lyn. “It’s also a good meeting place for those in the industry, and a chance for the city to learn more about farming life in this wonderful country.” Educating young people about Shorthorns and cattle breeding in general is a top priority for Lyn, who has been involved with the SA Junior Heiffer Show since 1986. “I enjoy mentoring young people, several of whom are now exhibiting their own cattle and believe this is very important for the future of the industry.” See the Shorthorns being judged on Friday 7 September in the Beef Cattle Pavilion.

Feathered friends of all shapes and sizes can be found in the Poultry Pavilion at the Show. Here we meet two exhibitors – Adrian Burgess and Tim Buxton.

Adrian Burgess Birds of all varieties are a passion for Jervois breeder Adrian, who has exhibited at the Show for 44 years. A member of the Poultry & Pigeon Committee for four years, Adrian has about 250 birds including fowls, bantams, ducks and geese.

Bird’s-eye

view

“I had a lot of parrots and things as a kid, then started with chooks,” Adrian enthuses. “I began showing them as a teenager, but was told I didn’t have Show-worthy fowls, so I started improving from there. I’ve always been involved with agriculture including as an agronomist and teacher of poultry subjects.” Adrian has won prizes and breed champions before at the Adelaide Show and, this year, will exhibit several breeds in the waterfowl section including Muscovies, Indian runners and mallards. He’ll also be exhibiting several birds in the bantam section. Depending on the breed, he says, birds can be judged on everything from their colour pattern to their eyes, comb, legs, feathers and head. Adrian will also judge at the Melbourne Show this year, but says Adelaide’s is his favourite. “SA’s premier poultry show and exhibition will be full of people talking chooks!”

Tim Buxton Winning Champion Racing Pigeon at last year’s Show was a thrill for Tim – and he’ll be back with his brood again. Tim, who is deputy chairman of the Show’s Poultry and Pigeon Committee, has exhibited at the Adelaide Show since 1988. He’s also raced pigeons since the ‘70s and is the chairman of the Southern Racing Pigeon Federation. “Favourite breeds exhibited over the years have included Dragoon, Show and Flying Tipplers, Silesian Swallow, Mondain and, of course, racing pigeons,” Tim says. “I have also kept and shown Japanese Bantam chickens at various times.” A passion for birds began with keeping chooks as a youngster and having a father who raced pigeons. On judging at the Show, Tim says: “All birds shown should be in great condition, healthy and as calm in the hand as possible. The winning decision will be based primarily on the ‘standard’. However, the condition of the bird shown is a big factor.” For Tim, one of the best aspects of the Show is the camaraderie. “Catching up with old friends, the variety of exhibits around the whole Show and the spring timing all add to the atmosphere,” he says.

! p U e l d S ad Shetland ponies are as cute as a button – and kids can ride them at the Show!

P

ony rides will again be part of the fun at this year’s Show – and an operator with a long family history will hold the reins for the first time. John Gill, 74, from NSW’s Wagga Wagga is a thirdgeneration pony ride operator. “My dad and my grandpa ran pony rides before me. No one has been operating pony rides longer in Australia than the Gill family,” John says. “We used to be around in the days of the Wild West shows and the boxing tents, travelling from town to town in horse and wagon, before the vehicles.” John says the equine animals are a big part of his life. “I’ve just grown up doing what I’m doing. When I was 13, I operated pony rides at agricultural shows for my uncle in 1950 for six pence a ride, which is five cents.” While John runs pony rides regularly at Royal Shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, he hasn’t set foot on the Adelaide Showground since 1950.

2012232 FUIC Coupons Ad.indd 1

Still, he is pleased to be back and has a strong link to our fair city. John’s mother, Gladys Gill, came from Port Adelaide and was once Australia’s leading woman roughrider. Children can ride Shetlands, led by a guide, around an enclosed area. Ponies, of all different hues, will be on display, with cute names like Bambam, Fuzzy, Slowcoach, Tiny Tim, Vegemite and Mouse.

Meet the

Ponies

The rides are expected to be a Show highlight. “In the last six years in a row at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, we’ve won first prize for the children’s best ride,” John says. “There’s a lot of novelty value – a lot of kids don’t see ponies unless they go to the Show.”

bambam fuzzy slowcoach tiny tim vegemite & mouse

John’s passion for the agricultural side of the Royal Shows remains strong. “It’s the one time of year that the country comes to the city.”

Teams from South Australia’s Brighton Secondary School have done extremely well in the competition in the past, taking out a host of state titles in recent years. Earlier this year the school’s Cold Fusion team took their success one step further, becoming the first South Australian team to win the Professional Champion category at the national awards. They will now go onto to represent Australia at the 2012 F1 in Schools world finals, on October 27 to November 4, at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. The F1 in Schools program attracts more than 40,000 Australian high school students each year, teaching them valuable skills such as leadership, team building, project management and business planning. Many students have secured employment or university scholarships following participation in the program, and one student has even gained employment with a real Formula1 racing team as an aerodynamics engineer. See the F1 in Schools competition being judged on Monday, September 10 and Tuesday, September 11.

judged at regional judging days in Golden Grove, Loxton and Flinders University in mid-August.

Competition organiser Trevor Noble, from PICSE, said the Science Investigation Awards are a great way for students to learn about scientific methodology while investigating a topic that interests them. Past projects have looked at the effect of coffee on radish seed germination, natural millipede deterrents and whether the acid in citrus fruits affects the sugar levels of juice.

“Some entries will be on display before the judging day in a glass case at the entrance to the Goyder Pavilion, while on the judging day all finalist entries will be displayed on trestle tables upstairs in the Goyder Mezzanine.”

he awards are an initiative of the Primary Industry Centre for Science Education (PICSE) – an organisation that aims to connect secondary science teachers and tertiary-bound students with sciencebased primary industries and career paths.

“The opportunities for research are endless,” says Trevor. Golden Grove High School science students Caitlin Hopkins and Maddy Quinn.

Designed to reflect UNESCO (United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organisation) priorities such as fostering global links and developing products that improve the human condition, the competition sees students explore the use of technology through the ages using a commercial modelling system, such as Lego. Structures can include houses, buildings, transport, games, models, animals and action heroes.

Technology committee spokesperson Graham Brand says the commercial modelling competition is an important step for young people to start and continue their journey through technology.

“The students are encouraged to produce a design brief, investigate possible solutions in the real world and devise a solution,” says Graham. “It also introduces young people to the huge area of technology as a useful tool or resource, and fosters valuable skills such as teamwork, networking and problem-solving.”

A valuable source of early South Australian history lies within the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society’s extensive collection. In fact, former RA&HS archivist, the late Mr Jack Reddin OAM, found such a wealth of information that he wrote two books – The First Stripper, which explored agricultural inventions by Ridley and Bull, and Teamwork, which documents the early days of the wine industry in South Australia. Society Archivist Marilyn Ward says the Year Books, which date from 1880 to 1937, not only hold the annual statistics of things relating to Shows but also contain papers on a wide range of topics, reports on the establishment of early agricultural properties and prices of the day for wheat, copper, wool, sheep and cattle.

“In addition the collection comprises correspondence, minute books, annual reports, records of annual produce, livestock and wine show information, farm machinery trials, press cuttings, stud stock registers, maps and plans, posters, paintings, photographs, certificates, award records, ribbons, medals, trophies and artifacts,” she says. “Researchers come for many reasons – a large proportion relate to family history, seeking details on a family member’s involvement in the fields of competitive entries, commercial exhibiting, entertainment or judging. “Model gardens, medallions, concerts in Centennial Hall, as well as facts and figures for novels and theses, are just a few of the things that have been explored.” In 2007 the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Archives Foundation of SA Inc. was formed to continue the conservation and preservation of the collection. The generosity of the public with memorabilia and monetary donations greatly assist in this aim. Visit the Archives office during the Show open from 10am – 5pm daily.

Featuring interactive displays and truckloads of fun activities for all ages, the roadshow is designed to help all Australians celebrate the important role farming plays in our lives. According to Glenn McGrath – now an active champion of rural and regional Australia – it is important to strengthen the linkages between rural and urban communities. “Educating metropolitan Australians about the importance of our agricultural community is a significant challenge, but this year is providing an opportunity to raise awareness about how and where our food and fibre is produced and the people behind its production,” Mr McGrath said.

“This year – Australian Year of the Farmer – is a great time for all Australians to reconnect and to educate urban children, families and communities about the breadth of our agricultural sector and celebrate what it means to them.”

see sawing! Women from three countries – including a seasoned competitor from the USA – will battle it out in a woodcutting contest.

A

merican Nancy Zalewski will be among the top women woodcutters competing in a tri-country event at the 2012 Show.

Build it & they will come

Teams of seven from the United States, New Zealand and Australia will go saw against saw in a women’s test series. The relay event, first run in 2009, features underhand, double-handed and single-handed sawing activities. The team scoring the best out of the three tests will win.

Follow the sound of hammering and water lapping for an interactive boat-building event.

Nancy says competing in Australia is always different to her home country. “The wood in Australia is much harder than in America, so the US competitors struggle to learn to cut Down Under. However, it does make us better axe-women back home.” While women’s woodcutting is popular in the US, Nancy says it is still gaining appeal in Australia. “There are some big hurdles to overcome with it being a maledominated sport in both Australia and New Zealand. However, I’m amazed at the number of people who approach me and tell me they came specifically to see the women compete.”

B

oating might not be something you’d usually associate with the Royal Adelaide Show, but that is indeed what’s on offer – at least in miniature scale. An interactive kids’ model boat-building event will be held for a second time at the Old Ram Shed throughout the Show. All are welcome to take part, with participants snapping up about 300 model kits last year.

Nancy grew up in Hayward, Wisconsin, where the Lumberjack World Championships are held in America. Family involvement in the event nudged her to try her hand. “I started at the age of 30, which is quite late for someone to start this sport,” Nancy says. “I have been competing since 1999 when I first learned how to jack-and-jill saw.”

Organiser Robert Ayliffe, who runs Mount Barker boatbuilding business Straydog Boatworks, said this year there will be two versions of wooden model kits on offer: one for building a sailing boat, and the other, a rubberband-powered paddle boat. “It just broadens the appeal of the event again,” Robert enthuses. “Participants will be able to build the kits up into battleships or liners. We’ll also have at least one full-sized boat being built by a helper to add to the activity.”

Jack-and-jill sawing is so-called because a man and woman compete together. Since then, Nancy says: “I have learned nearly every event for women from single and double-cross cut sawing to bow saw, axe throw, underhand chop, and the chainsaw events. There is always something to work on to improve, so you can never sit back and think you’ve learned it all.” Nancy maintains a fitness regimen in the lead-up to an event. “I try to train at least three days per week in the summer when we’re competing, and in the winter, I train at the gym. I do a bit of cutting in my garage, but our winters are pretty cold so I don’t do it often! Of course, there is no better training than doing the actual event.”

The fun event is modelled on a kids’ program Robert saw in America at Port Townsend’s Wooden Boat Festival. Of the local version, he says: “It gets kids back into making stuff. It’s not virtual, it’s real. Last year, kids turned up and said they’d heard their mates talking about it at school. You just get that buzz flowing. What really surprised us, as well, was the number who stayed all day – along with their parents.”

While outside of the competition arena, the entrants are amicable, Nancy says, inside is a different story. “Everyone wants that first-place ribbon and to say that they’re the best in the world.” See the third and final test in the Women’s International series on Monday, September 10, at 2pm.

Robert said last year’s event attracted people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Plus: “The boats built by the girls were equally as good as the boys’. Age was no barrier either – participants ranged from four years of age to the oldest whacking nails being 84.”

Like last year, Compass Tanks will provide a water-filled tank to launch the boats in, affectionately dubbed the “Great Deep”. A Swiss mountain horn will also be tooted to mark each launching. As well, there will be a “great wall of honour”, where participants can leave their boats on display and collect them at the end of their Show visit.

he Society is greatly reducing the amount of waste going into landfill.

100% of the waste at the Show which comes from animals, straw, wood shavings and animal manure goes for recycling. Special bins are used in the animal pavilions for the collection of waste which is then sent for soil composting and used in the production of fertiliser and other garden products. Cardboard packaging is collected in special bins and separated for compaction on site and recycling, removing it from the waste stream that would otherwise go to landfill. Wooden pallets are recycled if they are broken and can no longer be used. Special bins have been constructed for the separation and collection of cans and plastic bottles, this is achieved

Martin MacLennan Bakery Judging

Martin MacLennan certainly knows his way around a baking oven. He is part-owner of the Bagel Boys Bakery in Adelaide, president of the Baking Association of Australia SA, on the board of the national body, and works for Laucke Flour Mills. He has judged in the Adelaide Show’s bakery section – comprising breads, scones, pastries and more – for two decades.

the

“It’s a privilege to appraise a person’s pride in the presentation of their products and see the improvement in quality from one year to the next,” Martin enthuses. Judging can take half a day. “We normally arrive at about 10am, after the products have been expertly laid out by the volunteers,” Martin says. “The head judge will allocate judging teams to specific product groups. We generally have a judge and a penciller, who is also invited to have input as part of training to become a judge. For the next four to five hours, we carefully inspect visually and for flavour and award points for craftsmanship, involving all components.”

Behind the showbags, fairyfloss and fireworks is a cast of thousands who work tirelessly to stage the Royal Adelaide Show. The overwhelming majority of these people are volunteers, including 700 judges and stewards who support the Show’s competitive sections. Here we meet four judges involved in the 2012 Royal Adelaide Show.

6 2 O F F I C I A L M A G A Z INE I N E O F T H E R O YA L A D E L A I D E S H O W | www.theshow. www.th e show. com . a au u

In his spare time, Martin also judges other contests such as the Tasmanian Baking Competition, the Best Meat Pie and the Great Aussie Pasty Competition. Away from the mouth-watering scent of baking at the Adelaide Show, Martin says he enjoys watching the horses in action.


Margaret Hurst Cake Judging

Margaret Hurst has an enviable gig at the Show. She’s a cake judge in the cookery section – a role she’s enjoyed for the past 20 years.

Anne Gregory Cat Judging

Following the career of a promising kitten and seeing it blossom into a top-winning cat is one of the best parts of cat judge Anne Gregory’s job. “I just love handling the cats and finding an exhibit that makes my heart melt,” the guest international judge from Kent in the United Kingdom says. The UK’s only GCCF (Governing Council of the Cat Fancy) all-breed judge spends up to 40 weekends each year at cat shows, including the GCCF Supreme Show in the UK. “I have also judged in the United States and all over Europe, including twice in Monaco where I had the honour of meeting HSH Princess Caroline in 2011.” The Adelaide Royal will be Anne’s first Australian judging gig. “I am really looking forward to coming – it is so exciting.” A former breeder and exhibitor of pedigree cats, these days Anne concentrates on judging. “My husband and I visited our first cat show in 1972 and realised the people with the best job were the judges as they get to handle the cats.” Describing herself as “quite particular about the way a cat is presented”, Anne currently owns a beautiful Selkirk Rex female neuter and a short-haired black tortoiseshell. Away from the judging ring Anne says cat shows are excellent social events, providing an opportunity to meet up with fellow owners and breeders and to enjoy friendly rivalry. She is also a passionate supporter of the GCCF’s young exhibitor scheme for youth aged 8 to 16. “This has been going for two years now and has proved extremely successful.”

Her passion for cake competitions began after her husband, Neil, dared her to enter her local show’s contest in Tanunda 40 years ago. Since then, she has won many blue ribbons as an exhibitor and also judged at most of SA’s country shows, as well as judging interstate. She still judges at shows in Kadina, Eudunda, Mount Pleasant, Mount Barker and Tanunda too. “I’ve met so many people, it’s just been fantastic,” Margaret enthuses. Last year, she was made a life member of the Agricultural Societies Council of SA for kick-starting the council’s Rich Fruit Cake State Championships and successfully guiding the contest for 30 years. Margaret also inspired its Genoa Cake Competition and convenes the Laucke/CWA Scone Competition. All the competitions’ finals are held at the Royal Adelaide Show. Margaret has also assisted with Show cookery books and worked for culinary brands like Bamix, as well as teaching cooking classes at WEA and TAFE. Judging at the Royal Adelaide Show is the crème de la crème for Margaret. “You cut every cake and have a taste, though you only take a little bit. You might also hand a bit to the stewards. Definitely a cake can look nice, but it has to taste nice as well.” On the Show as a whole, Margaret says what she enjoys most is “the pride everyone takes in what they’re exhibiting, from the cakes to the cattle”.

Don Hawke Grains & Fodder

Don Hawke has been a judge in the grains and fodder section of the Show for 20 years. The Balaklava retiree, who has also judged at shows in his home town, says he relishes the role. “I think it’s a wonderful thing, especially seeing the young competitors coming through. It’s also nice to have a look at the new grain varieties and catch up with all the judges. It gives me great pleasure picking out the samples.” At the Royal Adelaide Show, Don judges in the categories of wheat, durum and triticale – the latter being a hybrid of wheat and rye, used as stock feed. On the day of the competition, the bags of samples first need to be sorted. “The judging can take up to two-and-a-half hours,” Don says. All his categories are judged on such things as weight per hectolitre, protein content, type and appearance, and being free from foreign matter and harvest damage. Don previously worked for the Australian Wheat Board and South Australian Cooperative Bulk Handling. “I was in the grain industry for 45 years and I loved it,” he enthuses. 63

dancing with dogs Man’s best friend will put its best paw forward in a unique dance-off. Dancing dogs have been popular on TV talent shows of late – and now they’re set to be judged for the first time at the Royal Adelaide Show. Jenny McLoughlin, the chair of Dogs SA’s Dances with Dogs advisory committee, says dog dancing was approved by the Australian National Kennel Council as an official sport in Australia in 2009. A local demonstration team performed last year at the Show and received such a great response, an official competition is now being staged. Dances with Dogs began in the UK in 1990. The popularity of the sport is evident – this year, dancing dog Pudsey and his handler, Ashleigh Butler, won Britain’s Got Talent. “It really started out as obedience training with a twist,” Jenny explains. “It’s something that’s fun for the handler and the dog and also has spectator appeal. The key difference is that it’s done to music.”

all revved up Two rival car makers will go bumper-to-bumper in a fast and furious Ute challenge. The Aussie automotive icon, the Ute – often seen with a sheepdog on its back tray – will switch to race mode at the Adelaide Show. Two Holdens and two Fords will compete to win the best of three races in the Trackskill V8 Ute Challenge in the Main Arena. Gary “Chucky” Baxter, who races in the V8 Ute Racing Series around Australia, will be one of the drivers in the hot-seat. “We have one car in each corner and we take off around the arena, do a lap,

Categories include freestyle and heelwork to music. Pooches are judged on the routine content, technical merit, and musical interpretation including costume. Jenny’s husband, Daniel, is a judge of this year’s contest, so neither of them will enter. However, they’re usually rivals on the competition circuit with their Jack Russell terriers, Tiger and Skipper. People interested in getting involved in the sport can contact Dogs SA. See the dancing dogs in action at the Dog Pavilion on Saturday, September 15. Judging commences at 6.15pm.

Gary, who also runs Adelaide-based motorsport business Trackskill, says the performance is always a crowd-pleaser. “Usually, the commentator will work off that Holden-versus-Ford rivalry.” He adds: “The crowd loves it. As soon as we fire up the Utes and come into the ring, people come running from everywhere.” As for which car maker tends to get the crowd going the most, Gary says: “Adelaide’s a bit of a Holden town, so we normally get the biggest cheer for the Holdens!” See the Utes race at 8.30pm every night in the Main Arena.

Jenny says the dance moves are “up to the imagination of the owner and the ability of the dog”. These may include spins, leg-weaving, circling the handler, reversing, riding or pushing a prop, jumping through a handler’s arms or a prop, rolling over, and crawling backwards. Music accompaniments vary, according to Jenny. “Younger people tend to go for modern music, while other handlers prefer Hollywood themes or older-style music.”

then we flick the car in a big sliding turn and come back for a flying finish.”

Metropolitan Fire Service 150 years of service

T

he Metropolitan Fire Service stand in the Jubilee Pavilion is one of the most popular at The Show, and this year there’s even more reason to pay them a visit. The South Australian MFS – one of the oldest full-time fire services in the world – is celebrating 150 years. And though firefighting has changed dramatically over the years – from horse-drawn steam pumpers to the cutting-edge technology of today’s equipment – the aim of the MFS, to serve the people of South Australia 24-hours a day, seven days a week, has remained the same.

Visitors to the MFS stand can have their photo taken in uniform fighting a mock fire or pick up information on how to help make your home fire-safe. Fire officers will also be on-hand to answer questions, and the popular Stop, Cover, Drop and Roll competition is back, as is LiveLonga Lane. The winners of the MFS’s state-wide fire safety poster competition will also be on display, along with fire safety information.
