Eidsvold Show campdraft cannedEliza Rogers, Wednesday April 16, 2014 - 11:18 EST
Queensland's Eidsvold Show campdraft has been cancelled because of a lack of cattle.
The event requires up to 450 cattle, but show president Anthony Coates says the dry summer has left a big stock gap.
"Most good cattle managers were forced to sell cattle because of the dry weather and the lack of feed running into winter."
He says numbers in the show's cattle section will be down, but he expects quality to be high.
"We have a very strong prime cattle competition... our local producers are very keen on showing their cattle and they keep cattle back for it and look after them."
The section normally attracts about 200 head.
The show will be held on May 4.
