Unity College agriculture students have shown off the best of their livestock to family, friends and staff at an impressive parade.
With the Royal Adelaide Show back this year, the students took their school’s show as an opportunity to prepare for the big smoke.
The four categories were merino wether sheep, beef cattle, dairy cattle and Boer goats.
The showcase commenced with the parade around the paddock and concluded with an awards ceremony.
The students took pride in the animals they put on show, parading to a professional standard against the backdrop of the school’s ag centre.
Successful senior and junior handlers received ribbons for grand champion or reserve champion.
The sheep team was presented with an award as the best team of the year.
Staff also thanked the school’s livestock team major sponsors: Thornby, Thomas Foods International, Elders Insurance, Daish Irrigation and Fodder and NuFarm.
