Ambassador on show at Natimuk

The 2008 winner of the Victorian Agricultural Shows Rural Ambassador Award will be guest speaker at the Natimuk Show on Saturday.
Stockyard Hill agronomist Laura Tayler will officially open the show and speak about her experiences in the ambassador program.
Laura won the state title representing Beaufort Agricultural Society ahead of 13 other regional finalists including Wimmera-based runner-up Jackie Peacock.
As vice president of the Beaufort Agricultural Society and secretary of Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society Youth Committee, Laura said she enjoyed her involvement with the organisations and jumped at the opportunity to join the Rural Ambassador program.
“I’m proud of the community I come from and represent and I want people to know this,” Laura said.
“Too many times people say ‘no’ to opportunities when really we need to say ‘Yes, I would love to be involved’,” she said.
“It’s fun to get out there and let everyone know just how good rural life is.”
Natimuk Show secretary Judith Bysouth said Laura’s visit topped off a great program for Saturday’s show.
“I’m looking forward to hearing Laura speak about her time as the state’s show ambassador,” Judith said.
“It will be an interesting addition to an already exciting show program,” she said.
Judith said highlights of the show included the Serenity mobile animal farm and age-restricted mini tractor pull.
“Serenity Farm is safely designed for children to allow them to freely interact with hand-raised farm animals,” she said.
“The mini tractor pull is only for competitors aged 14 and under and has some fantastic prizes up for grabs.”
Judith said show organisers were still looking for more entries in the sheep competitions.
“We have fantastic sponsorship for this section but are just a bit light on for numbers at this stage,” she said.
Saturday’s show commences at Natimuk Showgrounds at 9.30am.
