Committed volunteers hope for a good turnout on Saturday
Hard work: Invercargill A & P show volunteers, from left, Fred Stevens, Megan Ahlefeld and Graham Calder have been
working hard ahead of the show this weekend.

through the events, he said it
was harder in Southland to get

had also meant entries were
getting thinner in beef, though
dairy entries were still going
strong, he said.
