The first year for the newly named New Zealand Agricultural Show (NZAG Show) seems to have gone off without a hitch.
Formerly the Canterbury A&P Show, the name was changed for 2018 under show president Tim Black.
Speaking to Rural Exchange on-site at the show, Mr Black said the three-day event went 'really well', and called the name change 'the best thing we've done'.

"Ninety percent of it is the weather, [the rest] is everyone else involved," he says.
On the way to becoming president, Mr Black began as announcer, then moving on to head the wool section.
The presidency term is restricted to one year, and Mr Black says next year he'll likely head back to announcing.
