Gresford School P&C are pleased to announce that the Cowpat Lotto will be on again at the Billycart Derby this year. We are exceptionally thrilled that Anna Tickle’s multi-award-winning Pinzgauer cow Lockwood Lodge Xena will be the animal called upon to do the honours. She will be parading the circuit with her 4-month-old calf as part of her extensive tour of shows and livestock events across the state, and ahead of her performance at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

So far this year LLX and Anna have been unbeaten in interbreed female classes. Triumphs include the Canberra Royal, supreme livestock exhibit at the Crookwell Show (beating prime steer, wool and sheep) and of course supreme beast at the Gresford Show. The Pinzgauer breed is an Austrian one of great ancientness and cowpat aiming ability.

The cowpat lotto is moving behind the pub, near the gumboot toss, which the P&C is also taking over this year, volunteers willing. During the Derby, do take some time out hurl a boot, or vie for the $300 prize in the lotto.
