SOUTH GIPPSLAND DAIRY EXPO IS HERE!

Korumburra Showgrounds

Dairy Expo 2018
SOUTH GIPPSLAND DAIRY EXPO
SEE THE LATEST IN DAIRY INNOVATION AND ENJOY A GREAT DAY OUT
The Strzelecki Lions Club is proud to host the 2018 South Gippsland Dairy Expo in Korumburra on Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 September.
South Gippsland is home to many exceptional dairy farm enterprises that form a significant part of the rural community. The Expo provides an opportunity for the community to see the latest in dairy innovation and technology - in an easy ‘one stop shop’ - while offering a host of entertainment for the whole family.
The Lions Club is delighted to have Fonterra, long term supporters of the Expo, as this year’s Major Sponsor. Fonterra Farm Source will host a stand on both days of the Expo, where community members can meet the team.
This year's Expo looks to be bigger and better, than ever:

The popular industry breakfast is on again, co-hosted by Fonterra and Reid Stockfeeds. The breakfast will take place at 8.30am, Thursday 27 September – but get in quick, bookings are essential (see below).

The Sanders Kids Farm Animal Pavilion, will offer plenty of interactive fun with animal pens, cow-mould painting, a dairy dress-up corner and more. This pavilion is hosted by the Rotary Club of Korumburra and sponsored by Poowong Dairy & Hardware and Westfalia Warragul.

Back by popular demand, Matt Harms, from OnFarm Consulting, is hosting "Love makes the world go round, what makes dairy go round… PEACE - LOVE - RYEGRASS" on Wednesday 26 September at 11.00am, sponsored by the South Gippsland Shire Council and Rabobank.

Panel members - Mark Wilms and Andrew Balfour (Wilfour Farms) and sharefarmer Michael O’Brien (Nambrok), Paul and Lisa Mumford and employee Aaron Thomas (Won Wron), Gordon and Sylvia Vagg and farm manager Paul Cocksedge (Leongatha South), and Matt Long (Rabobank) - will discuss what makes for a harmonious working relationship in the dairy industry. Learn how employee/employer, sharefarming and farm manager arrangements can be harmonious for both parties - is it easy, or does it take hard work?

The Udder Truth Showbag sponsored by South East Organic Fertiliser is back! is back! Purchase a $2 showbag at the gate, visit 10 of the listed exhibitors, answer an easy question, enter the draw, and you could be $3,000 richer by the end of the Expo!

Participating companies include: Fonterra, Federation Training, De Wit Trading/The Wrangler New Zealand, Browns Stockfeed Pty Ltd, Coopers Animal Health, Lely Center Gippsland, Easy Dairy Automation Systems, Gendore Tractors & Machinery Pty Ltd, GippsDairy/Dairy Australia, MaxCare, ProviCo, Rabobank, Reid Stockfeeds, Rural Bank, and Victorian Hoofcare Services.

For some fun competitive banter, "The Big Gippsland Jersey – Dunk-Off" is a must-see. A daily competition featuring star guests to dunk… in milk of course! The rules are simple: one dollar, one throw, and aim well.

In an Expo first, Cows Create Careers students from Gippsland schools will go head-to-head in a "Race About Dairy" - a game of speed, accuracy and knowledge. Students will complete activities and questions about the Australian dairy industry. First school over the line, wins. An initiative of Federation Training and Dairy Australia.

Hungry? Volunteers from Poowong Kindergarten will be serving tasty treats on both days of the Expo.

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Strzelecki Lions Club. To date, the Club has raised raised $540,000, which has been distributed throughout the community. The Club’s activities and the Dairy Expo, could not happen without valuable support from the community, companies, and volunteers.

Competitions:
$500 Writers Prize

The Coal Creek Literary Festival will be running a number of writing competitions this year as part of the festival. The main competition will again be the Bert van Bedaf Memorial Award for the best short story. Bert was an integral part of getting the Coal Creek Literary Festival off the ground ten years ago. After Bert passed away in 2010, the open short story competition was renamed to honour his memory. The prize money was increased to $500 and has since drawn a very high standard of entries.

Past winning entries have been posted on the Coal Creek Literary Festival website.
https://coalcreekcommunityparkandmuseum.com/literary-festival/.
The competition is open to anyone with an imagination, a pen and paper or word processing program. You can enter as many times as you like, each entry must pay an entry fee.
Competition entry Fee is $15

The festival will also be running an Open Poetry competition which offers a $200 prize
Competition entry fee for this is $10

Now entering its seventh year, the Bert van Bedaf award has proved to be a very popular part of the Coal Creek Literary Festival with entries coming from all over Australia. Entry forms can be downloaded from the Coal Creek Literary Festival website or can be picked up from Coal Creek Community Park & Museum in Korumburra. Conditions and entry fees are all on the entry form.

So if you have a story crawling around in your head, something Grandpa did as a kid or a weird dream crying out for a meaning, get it down on paper and send it in. It could be worth $500.

Entries close Friday 28 September 2018
