So far only for beef cattle this year, other livestock in future:

Ekka champion judging to be streamed live online via Google glasses.

Just heard this on the radio & thought it was interesting.

Hi guys, first time post. Been reading the forum for years..... :hiya:

Great idea and I was very excited to sit and watch the Champions being judged. However it just didn't work. Tried it on numerous devices and connections.

Here's hoping they get it right for next year!!

Same here Cowsandchooks. We were so excited for the livestream, but they stuffed it royally (Brisbane Royally :-) ).
We also tried it on different devices. Two laptops. Two Tablets (Android & iPad). Blackberry. And Smart Tv. After trying them all, we finally decided it was an issue at their end. :-)

What's also funny, is that when I replied to 'CowsandChooks' I remember thinking "I like cows and chooks too!"

Ah..der..
