The Katanning Agricultural Show returns for its 132nd instalment next weekend with a full program of fun and exciting farm-themed events. From the fan-favourite dog jumps and trials to Old MacDonald’s Travelling Farm, the show will once again offer something for all families and friends to enjoy. Showgoers will also be treated to shearing and wool handling competitions in the wool shed, equestrian events, poultry displays, produce samples, and fruit and vegie competitions. Show president Jill Kowald said the dog events were a key feature of the festival and drew big crowds. “Dog jumps is a favourite among the crowd and attracts a lot of people,” Ms Kowald said. “The dog jumps is essentially a high jump for dogs, and after each successive jump they increase the height. “It’s a really exciting event and people flock to it. “There will also be the dog trials as well on Top Oval, which is a cool competition, watching farmers control their dogs to muster sheep from one pen to another.” The dog trials will be held over the weekend of October 27-28, with the jumps taking place on the Top Oval on Saturday at 12.30pm. Shearing and wool handling competitions will take place in the shearing shed at 8.30am on day two of the show. “The shearing and wool handling comps are great events and it gets pretty competitive between the farmers to see who is the best at their job,” Ms Kowald said. Old MacDonald’s Travelling Farm will operate as a petting zoo, giving people the chance to get up close and personal with farm animals, providing a unique experience for young families. Young children will also have the opportunity to forage for gold in Ausgold’s gold panning area.
