The State finals of the Queensland Ag Shows prime beef and stud beef Young Judges and Young Paraders competitions will be held at the Proston Show on March 5.
The finals were to have been held at the 2021 Ekka, which unfortunately was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
They were then earmarked for the Stanthorpe Show this weekend but this show has now been postponed to a date to be set later in the year.
Qld Shows general manager Trevor Beckingham OAM said the new date would be too late for the finals so the next available slot was the Proston Show.
The Proston Show will also include a cattle feature this year, focusing on the Speckle Park breed.
Proston Show Society president Mortimer Duff said the committee’s planning was “full steam ahead”.
“All the stewards want their sections to run and we have received a lot of interest from competitors and the general public,” he said.
Mortimer told southburnett.com.au the Proston Show was expanding its food and camping options this year, as well as the bar.
“We are looking for a big turnout and welcome everyone to be a part of the day.”
The Murgon Show, which was to be held on March 11-12, has been postponed to a date to be fixed.
