“Legendairy” National Competition
Congratulations to the SFH Museum for being a finalist in the National competition and winning Port Elliot the title of “Legendairy Capital of South Australia”.
The SFH Museum’s plan to build a permanent dairy exhibit won the town the title. Deane Perry (Museum President) told the Stock Journal “For people who come off the farm in retirement it gives them a sense of purpose and a sense their skills can be recognised in an appropriate manner”. We should applaud our members efforts in raising the focus of Port Elliot and its over 120 year connection with the dairy industry. Dairy Australia has visited Port Elliot and the Museum and a National Winner will be announced in due course.
