The Southland A&P show has been slow to start, but there is no lack of enthusiasm from organisers.

Southland A&P Show executive officer Stephanie Mouat said the two day event had gotten off to a great start.

"We've had some logistical issues because there are so many people wanting to have a stall or a tent, it's a great problem to have. But it's all sorted now," she said.

Dogmatic performers Chelsea Marriner and Rip, from Rotorua, wait for their performance at the Southland A&P show. Rip was doing a great job of keeping an eye on the sheep.

President Graham Calder agreed.

"This afternoon's grand parade will be the thing to see," he said.

The parade begins at 2.45pm, and will be followed by the announcement of the winner of best in show.
