So the call has gone out to anyone and everyone, if you can cook, knit, crochet, paint, take photos, breed cattle, sheep or pigs, or have a clever pet, the options are endless, why not compete at the Royal Show. There is something for everyone at the Show, amazing entertainment, a family carnival atmosphere, over 500 commercial exhibitors, animals, stunning horticulture displays and food to please all palates.

2-10 September Vis it th es how.com. au

The ever-popular Bank SA Farmyard Nursery, Taste SA, The Meating Place and Farm Expo will all be back, providing entertainment and education.

There are five feature breeds at this year’s Show; Santa Gertrudis beef cattle, Corriedale sheep, Ayrshire dairy cattle, Schnauzer dogs and Berkshire pigs. The Show is a wonderful opportunity for city folk in particular to see large farm animals or even direct questions to a farmer. So make sure you spend time at the animal pavilions as the farmers enjoy sharing their experiences with the public. It’s with great pleasure that I acknowledge IGA as the Royal Show’s presenting partner for the next three years and the continuation of the Seven Network and Coca-Cola Amatil as Royal Show premier partners. The support and commitment of our partners and sponsors allows the Show to continue to grow and provide a wonderful experience for the broader community.

Food, Glorious Food Food continues to be a strong focus of the Royal Adelaide Show, whether it be educational regarding the source of our food, the opportunity to sample product available throughout the year or enjoying a rich array of delicious food on the day. Recent changes at the Royal Adelaide Show have broadened the variety of foods on offer and developed increased stylish precincts for dining at the Show.


media guide also available to be viewed at the show.com.au The Kingsway Gourmet Food Court includes outlets offering international cuisine and the licensed Coopers 1862 bar providing South Australian wine and beer in alfresco surrounds.

The Atrium Food Court is consistently popular with Showgoers as a casual undercover dining space. Traditional event favourites are available, including the Vili’s Café offering world famous pies with an assortment of accompaniments (chips & gravy) and delicious sweet pastries. The Boulevard Food Court is situated adjacent to the Coca Cola Stage and the expansive Hamilton Boulevard lawns. First class show catering mobile units offer a vast range of quality food to enjoy throughout the event.

In addition to the major precincts, ample opportunities are provided to enjoy good food –home made country fare, particularly scones at the CWA Café, home cooked meals at the Red Dove Café, a hearty breakfast or steak sandwich from the Personal Chef Country Kitchen, tender steak from The Grill at The Meating Place, coffee, cake and champagne at the Garden Café in the Goyder Pavilion.

Think Green The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA is committed to ensuring the Show has only a small impact on the environment and has implemented strategies to manage the waste produced during the Show. About 80% of the waste comes from animals, straw, wood shavings and animal manure. 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 fertilizer and other garden products.

Cardboard packaging is collected in special bins and separated for recycling, thus removing it from the waste stream that would otherwise go to landfill. Wooden pallets are also 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. With the co-operation and support of

visitors, Zero Waste SA, our caterers and the commercial traders at the Royal Adelaide Show, the Society is greatly reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. In Case of Emergency In the event that an emergency situation arises during the course of the Show, the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA has in place a set of policies and procedures designed to address the issues. The Society will do this by working closely with SA Police, SA Metropolitan Fire Service, Country Fire Service volunteers, other emergency services and relevant community agencies. If visitors see anything of concern to them, they should raise this with either, a hall attendant, pavilion supervisor, police officer or staff at the Royal Show office.

essentials

policies Non-Smoking Policy The Royal Adelaide Show has a policy of no smoking in all its indoor and grandstand facilities. This includes all livestock pavilions, commercial pavilions, Members Grandstand, Public Grandstands, Woodcutting Grandstand and open seating in the Atrium Plaza, Hamilton Boulevard and Kingsway Gourmet food courts and Kids Carnival.

Rides Policy The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA has a strict policy of only allowing at the Show, those rides which have passed requirements of SafeWork SA.

The ride industry in Australia is recognised as adhering to the very highest of standards. It is a safe industry with ride incidents occurring rarely. The ride operators work co-operatively with government agencies across Australia to ensure that safe practices are implemented and that high maintenance standards are achieved. A system of registration ensures that rides, which move from State to State can be tracked to ensure adherence to the strict guidelines set. Maintenance of the rides is a daily occurrence undertaken by the ride operators and visitors should not be alarmed if rides are closed for short periods for checks and ongoing maintenance. This is a practice that ensures high standards of safety are achieved.

Royal Adelaide Show visitors can be assured that all efforts are taken to ensure their safety on the rides is paramount and that they can enjoy their experience without the need for concern.

Did you know? The first Show in 1840 was staged in the yards of Fordham’s Hotel, Grenfell Street, where exhibits were exclusively produce. 1904 saw the first four day and two night Show. The Wayville site was purchased in 1911, although the first Show held was not until 1925. In 1911 there was a motor vehicle parade of about thirty vehicles, on the first day of the Spring Show and consisted of fast road cars to the heavy motor wagon. They went around the oval singly then in pairs then criss-crossed the oval. There were the ‘Delaunay’, the ‘Belleville’, the ‘De Dion’, the ‘Sunbeam’, the ‘Belsize Landaulette’, the ‘Commer’, the ‘Maxwell’, the ‘Hotchkiss’, the ‘Vauxhall’, the ‘Saurer’, the ‘Arrol Johnston’, the ‘Overland’, the ‘Wolseley’, the ‘Humber’, the ‘Ford’, the N.A.G.’ the ‘Argyll’, the ‘Hobson’ etc. In 1914, the first Sheaf Tossing Competition was introduced. Women shearers competed for the first time at a Royal Show, in Adelaide in 1961. The competitors were Beth Nicholls of Moree NSW and Julie Bott of Kalangadoo, SA. Many people remember the Centennial Hall concerts of the 1960’s, in particular the famous Beatles in 1964, but did you know that Dusty Springfield, Gene Pitney, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Manfred Mann, The Kinks, The Dave Clarke Five, The Seekers, Easy Beats, Roy Orbison, Yardbirds, Peter, Paul & Mary and Dave Brubeck also played there? In 1967 The London College of Heralds awarded the Society Armorial Bearings and Adelaide became the only ‘Royal’ in Australia to have arms and a crest. The ram, the bull and the horse are self explanatory. The significance of the smaller detail is that the gold typifies the fruits of the earth when ripe; the green, the growing stage; the grapes, viticulture; the shears, the wool industry and the harrows, agriculture. ‘Quo Ulberior Fiat Terra’ translated means: ‘That the earth may become more abundant’. Over 700 people act as stewards and judges during the Royal Adelaide Show. The majority of these are local or interstate participants, but there is also an

international presence with judges/officials this year coming from Ireland (Dogs), UK (Dogs), NZ (Horses), USA (Cats), South Africa (Dairy Cattle) and Korea (Farriers & Blacksmiths).

Events include the “Eagle Eye” and the Three Man Draught Horse Shoeing Event.

Some of the horses used in the competition are provided by the Victor Harbor Council from the horses that pull the Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Trams. These wonderful creatures are a credit to our State and to the people who love and care for them. Further information on Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Trams contact: Ian Williams on 0414 689 805.

golden grains

• The Pests in the Paddock • Ground to Grub Pop Quiz New for this year will be: •A ‘food chain’ wall display with lift the flap panels to help highlight steps of wheat from when its in the ground to when its the grub (food on your plate) • A grain ‘find a word’ activity table activity • A milling table where show goers can place wheat into desk top grain mills and see how flour is produced. There are a range of desk top mills available which grind wheat into flour in a quick manner, releasing the germ and by products (this helps reinforce the message of what wheat is actually used for and how flour is made); • A ‘dough’ table to demonstrate the role of gluten in bread wheat vs pasta wheat and other cereals. Students will be able to make their flour into dough and compare its properties with other flours. We will have pasta makers and noodles on display too demonstrating their colour differences and stability properties. Unlike many displays this exhibit will be ‘manned’ full time by a trained / professional science communicator who will encourage interactivity and help use the exhibits correctly and answer general questions.

Sheep

Breed Origin The Corriedale was simultaneously evolved in both Australia and New Zealand about 1874 by selectively breeding from cross bred progeny of pure Merino and Lincoln sheep. The breed was developed to meet a demand for a dual purpose animal with good meat characteristics and commercial wool production.

Contact: Prime Lamb and Maternal Breeds: Allan Piggott 0407 580 925, or Jo Geschmay, RA&HS (08) 8210 5267 or 0419 185 300

Today with over 125 years of line breeding behind it, the Corriedale is sufficiently fixed that hybrid vigour results when it is crossed with any other recognised pure breed.

Also in this area are Scouts with an interactive display to promote the Scouting Movement and Allington’s Saddlery with a wide range of country style clothing.

Feature Breed – Corriedale: Graham Jenke (08) 8769 6030 Merino, Poll Merino, Prime SAMM: Tim Donaldson 0418 859 991 The Royal Adelaide Sheep Show is divided into two sections – Prime Lamb and Maternal Breeds (judged first half of Show) and Merino, Poll Merino and Prime SAMM breeds (judged second half of Show) with changeover day being Monday 5 September.

Rabobank Sheep Feature Breed and Feature Fleece– Corriedale

Breed Identification and Description The modern Australian Corriedale is a large framed, plain bodied, polled sheep, capable of producing heavy carcases of lamb, hogget or mutton. Ideal for export and domestic markets, Corriedales produce heavy cutting bright fleeces, with good style, length and handle. Mean fibre diameter ranges from 25 to 30 microns in adult sheep to the low 20’s in lambs and hoggets. Yields which vary according to environment are in the 75% range. Flocks are also in demand for hand spinning. Distribution Because it is run in a wide range of conditions the breed’s popularity ranks second only to the Merino in the world at the present time. In South America alone, Corriedales account for some 70% of the sheep population, and graze from the heat of the equator to Tierra del Fuego’s cold, from a wet 1500mm rainfall to a low 275mm, and from sea level to 3500 metres


media guide also available to be viewed at the show.com.au in the rare air of the Altiplano. Corriedales are farmed in Australia because they give so many options in marketing. Being a dual purpose breed they can meet demands of both meat and wool markets, namely prime lamb production, wether markets (live export or slaughter), wool production, crossbred mothers and stud ram sales. Ewes are sound prime lamb mothers and with present trends their use for a self replacing flock has increased. Lamb rearing percentage of up to 140% can be achieved where this is required. Corriedale lambs are leaner than those sired by terminal breeds because their wool producing ability limits obesity. Production Characteristics Lambing exceeds 100%. Wool cut is 7kg and more per year with a yield of 75%. The animals have a long life span.

The League started as a one off performance at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and became the biggest night at the Melbourne Fringe for 5 years in a row. 800 people in the venue and queues around the block, at least 800 more!!! After creating an impact like that, the show gained a life of its own. The League was the hit of the Adelaide Fringe a couple of years back and last year was one of the featured acts at The Darwin International Arts Festival. This is the 5th year The League of Sideshow Superstars have been invited back to the Adelaide Show, each year they have attracted big audiences and with a new cast and new stunts this year will be no exception. Shep “the man with the iron skin” Huntly is the leader of The League of Sideshow Superstars and a favourite with Adelaide crowds. With so many stunts in his repertoire it is hard to know exactly what he will pull from his bag of tricks. He may pull out the worlds only Bed of Forks, he may bring The Bed of 8 Nails, he may show you why he is known as “The King of Animal Traps”. Whatever happens while Shep is on stage it is guaranteed to be exciting, innovative and inspiring.

Aerial Manx is Australia’s newest sideshow sensation. He is solely responsible for reinventing the ancient art of sword swallowing. Manx is the only person in the history of the world to combine sword swallowing and acrobatics. Here is a man who literally risks his life every time he goes on stage.

If the stunts don’t kill him the suspense might kill you!!!!!! Ruby Rubberlegs is one of the world’s elite contortionists. She was born with legs like rubber bands. She will attempt to bend contort and even dislocate her body through the frame of a handheld mirror. Her act has to be seen to be believed and is certainly not to be tried at home. Last but not least we have The Great Gordo Gamsby, born into a circus family, Gordo has been performing since he was two years old. His skills are many, varied and world class. The best Cigar box manipulator in the country is also a breakdancer, swordswallower and clown. Gordo has just returned from England and Spain where he is so popular he has his own fan club. Last year The League of Sideshow Superstars was one of the most popular attractions at the Adelaide Show. This year, with a great blend of new stunts and old favourites the performance is just the right blend of scary and exciting. There is something for all ages.

Thank a Farmer Contact: Judith Noble RA&HS (08) 8210 5215 or 0419 185 303 Farmers are being given long overdue recognition for the invaluable role they play in our society continues to grow this year. ‘Thank a Farmer’ will see goods and animals produced by farmers highlighted at the Show, with the aim of encouraging Show-goers – particularly city dwellers – to consider how much we have to thank farmers for. Food is essential to sustain life and, as our population grows, food security becomes more important. But our reliance on farmers and agriculture is a lot broader than just food. Increasing the profile of South Australia’s agricultural producers is one of the Society’s key goals and we believe the ‘Thank a Farmer’ program will help raise Show-goers’ awareness in a fun, educational way. Watch for “Thank a Farmer” ribbons around the Showground, including arts and crafts, cookery and clothing exhibitors – then question what input a farmer has had in the products on show.
