Solway Showgrounds Masterton NZ

Show Entries

The Show Committee is working hard to increase the number of entries. We saw a substantial increase in beef cattle at the 2017 Show and good numbers of dairy BUT we need more entries across all classes to make a success of the Show. A highlight of the 2018 Show will be a special section devoted to showcasing Highland Cattle.

Highland Cow 2017 Show
