The Sydney Royal Easter Show Promotes Agriculture

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is run by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS). The RAS is a not-for-profit organisation that encourages the sustainable development of Australia’s agriculture. Agriculture is often the forgotten industry feeding and clothing Australians.

Farmers exhibit their livestock to see who has the champion animal in the state. Everything from cattle, sheep, goats, horses, alpacas, and chickens are housed at the Showgrounds for their rounds of judging. Even things like wool and honey produced in NSW are judged.

Various displays educate the public about how food is produced on farms before it even hits the shelves of supermarkets. Sheep are shorn, cows milked, chickens hatched, and bees make honey. Cats, dogs and reptiles are judged.

There are also cooking demonstrations, fashion parades, woodchopping competitions. and food sampling and sales.

Entertainment is provided in the main arena, the Spotless Stadium during the day and night. This ranges from horse jumping, stunt bikes and cars, circus acts, rodeo, polo cross concluding each night with a fireworks display.

Amusement rides cater for children, teenagers and adults. Some spin, some rotate, some flip, some loop, and some zoom.

The 2018 Sydney Royal Easter Show concludes this Tuesday.
