16 Friday, Ma News Agfest FULL HOUSE: This year's Agfest attracted more than 61,500 over the three days. Pictures: ROSS MARSDEN CUTE: The Van Halem calf was a big hit with schoolchildren. TIME OUT: Agfest committee member Rob Shoobridge had a brief moment to get a cuddle from his daughter Holly, 14 months. Agfest reaps its rewards From page 15 really 11 months of work that goes into getting ready, but we all enjoy it.'' Mr McConnon was kept busy last week handling complications that came with too much rain. ''We did a lot of last-minute work on Wednesday night just fixing up some roads and putting mulch where it was needed so things looked good for Thursday, and that paid off,'' he said. ''Once it starts, there's not much you can do -- what will happen, will happen and you can't control Mother Nature.'' Ms Burns said feedback from exhibi- tors this year had been positive. ''I've had a talk to some of our exhibitors at breakfast over the last couple of days and the feedback has been very positive, especially given the slow start on Thursday because of the weather,'' she said. The marquee city that was built for Agfest will slowly be removed over the coming weeks and the Agfest com- mittee will sit down for the annual de- brief sessions to see what improve- ments can be made for next year. ''There are always things we can improve on, but at the moment they're just ideas on pieces of paper and in peoples' heads,'' Ms Burns said. ''But we'll sit down and look at all that over the next few weeks.''
