Tatura was the focus for Dairy Week but a Queensland politician saw an opportunity for an audience on Wednesday.January 24, 2013 12:00pm
One family scooped the top prizes at International Dairy Week’s Jersey feature show.
Corey and Karin Couch, who run the Riverside Jerseys stud at Nirranda near Warrnambool, won supreme champion Jersey exhibit, champion Jersey cow, reserve champion Jersey cow and best Jersey udder.
Mr Couch said it was a huge honour to win the prizes and he and his family were proud.
Outside the ring, Queensland federal politician Bob Katter arrived unannounced at the event and caused some consternation.
On his arrival, Dairy Week organisers asked him to make the tour quick and refrain from turning it into a political event.
He protested the restriction, but continued on with his visit.
He spoke to members of the public for several hours and was working his way around the Blackmoore and Leslie Centre when one of the exhibitors demanded the trailing media go outside where a press conference would be held.
At the subsequent press conference, Mr Katter called for the re-regulation of the Australian dairy industry.
