A RODEO rider, a butcher and the man behind one of Tamworth’s biggest moves. In his first year as the newly-elected Tamworth Pastoral and Agricultural Association president, Greg Townsend, isn’t afraid of change. He’s the man heading up Tamworth Show’s move from its home of more than a century at the old showground to AELEC. The 2018 Tamworth Show will be hosted in September instead of its traditional March date to coincide with AELEC’s 10th birthday. He’s hoping the revamped show will spark an interest in agricultural education. So if you want to know where milk comes from, he’s got the answer.
