Committees

The Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society and the success of the Royal Adelaide Show depends heavily on the following Committees and the dedicated Councillors who give their valuable time each year to assist.

Art, Craft, Cookery & Technology

 "Our Councillors are a group of artisans and educators with expertise in the fields of Art, Craft, Design, Technology, Home Economics and Cookery. We aim to maintain and improve the traditional and modern crafts and encourage the younger exhibitor to participate in the Royal Show."

Dairy Products

"The role of the Dairy Products Committee is to ensure that the Australian Dairy Industry and its products are properly marketed and displayed at the Royal Adelaide Show.  This is done through the very prestigious Royal Show/DIAA Dairy Industry awards and the professional sale and presentation of these products throughout each Royal Adelaide Show"

Diverse Farming

"The Diverse Farming Committee encompass competitive exhibition of Alpacas and Goats (Dairy, Boer, and Angora) including two school sections.
Also competitions for Blacksmiths and Farriers, Sheep Shearing and Sheaf Tossing and displays of themed Vintage Machinery.

Grains & Fodder

"The purpose of the Grains & Fodder Committee is to promote the attributes of both Grain and Fodder and highlight the significance of both industries to the South Australian economy"  - Andrew Hentschke (Chair)

Horticulture

"The Councillors of the Horticulture Committee are experts who volunteer their time to represent their chosen field and assist in the promotion of Horticulture in South Australia" - Walter Duncan

Horse

"The eight members of the Light Horse Committee meet throughout the year in preparation for presenting horse, rider, driver and carriage competition at the annual Royal Adelaide Show. The Show program is diverse and attracts the leading and most successful competitors nationally and provides a unique opportunity for South Australian competitors to present before a judge on one of the best riding and driving surfaces in Australia" - Hamish Findlay (Chair) 

Dairy Cattle & Pig

The Dairy Cattle and Pig Committee aims to promote a competition of the highest standard between exhibitors in each section and encourage young people to participate in the Agricultural Sector in the showing of Pigs and Dairy Cows.  We also encourage the production of high value milk during the Show as part of a sustainable food production industry across the nation. Our Councillors work as a part of the Royal Adelaide Show to promote the consumption of Pig meat and Dairy products and present Australian agricultural production to consumers whilst fostering relationships with the Australian community, farmers and consumers.
