Main underground power is 415 volts and any contact may result in death by electrocution or require expensive repairs by the Exhibitor.

NLIS & Tick Spraying for Cattle Exhibitors at Ag-Grow
To assist you we have made arrangements for all exhibited cattle over the age of 2 years to be read and registered, this will be conducted on the Thursday morning at your site. It would be appreciated if your PIC number is available for reading if necessary.
Ag-Grow Management will also negotiate with the DPI for exhibitors, who are required to cross a tick line, to have their cattle sprayed at the Ag-Grow grounds. If this applies, exhibitors are requested to contact Ag-Grow to provide approximate numbers.
