DAIRY & BEEF SECTIONS @ THE ROYAL EASTER SHOW 2019.

There will be no Dairy, Beef or Calf Club classes at the Royal Easter Show 2019. After much consideration it is with regret that The Auckland Agricultural & Pastoral Association has decided not to hold any Bovine Cattle Events. Our decision has not been taken lightly but  given the risk Mycoplasma Bovis poses, we support the endeavours of MPI to control and eradicate the disease. Please note all other animal classes will be held as usual.

Auckland Agricultural & Pastoral Livestock competitions and exhibits are held annually at the Royal Easter Show. Over the duration of the show over 4500 livestock are transported to the showgrounds in the heart of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.
These livestock are entered into competitions and displays to the public. The highlight of the livestock section being the competitive classes, which the Auckland A&P administers approx. 2000 competition classes over 127 different events which includes:

Alpacas
Cattle (Beef & Dairy)
Dairy Goats
Equestrian
Pet Lamb/Goats
Pigs
Poultry & Caged Birds
Rabbits
Shearing
Sheep (Wool & Meat)
Sheep Dog Trials
Young Handlers

Our Livestock displays are penned in the well renowned ‘Farm world’ which has been a ‘hands on’ farm animal experience for the public since 1985. Livestock represent all the above competition entries, with other farming livestock ie. Deer and Ostrich. This is complemented with milking demonstrations and calf feeding.
