It is with great pleasure that we announce Mr Jim Fletcher as the 2017 Dalgety Show Opener. It only seems fitting that Jim open the show as one of the area's esteemed poultry people as we celebrate The Year of the Rooster.
Jim has been a member of the Dalgety Show for many years and many of those as the Head Steward of the Poultry section and is held in high regard by many in the poultry scene be it breeding, judging or entering his birds into poultry shows in the state.

For all those home brewers out there – why not save a few bottles and enter them in show. The children’s exhibits showcase the young talent we have in the region and the baked goods are a delight… who will have the best chocolate cake in 2017?
