The Beatson & Beatson Memorial sheep dog trial was held at the Koonoomoo Recreation Reserve last week, with victory going to local trialler Paul O’Kane.
‘‘The Cobram Toy Library kept the triallers and spectators well fed each day, with the proceeds going to the Cobram Toy Library,’’ event secretary Denise Doherty said.
Ms Doherty thanked sponsors Helen Morgan from Millswyn White Suffolks at Katandra along with AAA Woolbuyers Shepparton and Alex Scott & Staff.
And the tireless four-legged competitors weren’t forgotten — dog food manufacturer Hypro Australia donated a pallet of DogPro Working Dog.
The trial, on the same site as the annual Cobram Campdraft, came together with hard work and generosity from local businesses.
The crossbred lambs for the trials were provided by Bill O’Kane from Katamatite. Max Campbell from Barooga supplied the portable sheep yards, while John Kohne transported the sheep to and fro each day.
The Barooga Sports Club also pitched in, donating the use of a golf cart that saved some weary legs.
