Brisbane's big day out

Courier Mail - Australia

'At the Ekka about 100,000 people streamed into the showgrounds, while crowds at the Eagle Farm races were so big organisers had to close the gates.


Highlight of the day was the Grand Parade of prize-winning cattle, horses, goats and even llamas in the main arena.

Hundreds of animals kicked up dust clouds as they entered the ring for an impressive, braying display of the best of Queensland farming.

Leading his champion Dexter bull, Bircham Sir Winston, was Samford farmer Ian Manly.

The 60-year-old's eight cattle won a staggering 16 ribbons at this year's show.'
