Town’s poultry move

Shire in talks with poultry association over new home

EUROA could soon be known as the ‘chook capital’ of Australia if plans by the Victorian Poultry Fanciers Association (VPFA) to relocate to the town go ahead.

The VPFA has been left homeless after the Victorian Government took control of the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV).
