Where there is muck there is money

WHO WOULD have thought that cow poop could be worth money?

Get along to the Chudleigh Show on Saturday the 16th February to find out how.

The Junior Beef Expo committee are holding the first ever cow poo lotto.

A novel approach to fund-raising, it works by marking out a paddock with grid lines and numbering the resulting squares.

Competitors purchase a square or squares in the grid and a cow is then let into the gridded paddock.

Here’s where it gets intense with every one waiting and watching to see which square the cow poops on as this will be the winner.

Chudleigh Show has been running since 1889, 130 years.

A great family day out, the show will also feature a dog high jump competition, a trick horse display, mens muffin competition, sheep dog trial, dairy and beef cattle exhibits as well as sheep and horse events. F

or children there will be a jumping castle, pony and train rides. The committee are also hoping to hold a kids fishing event. Entry is $10.00 for adults; $20.00 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 children).
