“It was the best show we have ever had! Everything was just excellent … and the gate was way up on previous years!”
Blackbutt Show Society president Stephen Heit is over the moon about this year’s show, which was held on Saturday.
And he was also particularly happy about the rodeo.
“Everyone enjoyed it; in fact you couldn’t get a seat around the ring it was so full!” he said.
The rodeo, which included everything from poddy rides to bull rides, topped off a big day at the 79th annual Blackbutt Show.
The ute muster was also popular with lots of entries coming from all over south-east Queensland.
Mr Heit said pavilion entries were also good; while some categories were down a little, others were up.
Like most of the other ag shows this year, entries in the equestrian events were down a bit, but that didn’t stop the riders from competing hard.
“The stud cattle might have been affected a little by other shows on the same day, but still it was good,” Mr Heit said.
“In fact the whole show was unbelievable!”
