One of the standout events of this year’s George Agricultural Show was the Tent Pegging World Cup. This prestigious competition not only drew top international talent but also had a significant impact on sports tourism in George. The influx of visitors brought an economic boost to the area and added a touch of prestige to the George Show.

Another highlight of the show was the hosting of not one, but three prestigious Dairy National Championships simultaneously. This marked the first time in a decade that these three championships – Jersey, Holstein, and Ayrshire – were held together at the same venue. The show saw the participation of over 180 animals, and a successful Jersey Genetics Auction on Friday night added to the excitement surrounding the dairy competitions.
