The Dowerin Field Days were back in full swing this year, after a break caused by Covid restrictions in 2020, with record crowds attending over the two days.

The young sheep supplied by the Emmott family proved to be a good challenge for the dogs.  The dogs which gave them a little space had the better results.

The weather was mostly fine with some wind over the two days.

Handlers had to deal with the challenges of Helicopters flying overhead, Tractor pulls next to the arena and Monster trucks giving joy-rides, stirring up the dust.

In the Novice there were 11 scores from 28 runs, Improver 9 scores from 23 runs and the Open had 16 scores from 38 runs.

Due to time constraints a run-off was not held for the Open event.
