THOSE at the Roma saleyards this morning got a chance to meet an Australian celebrity, when Sunrise's weatherman Grant Denyer dropped in for a visit.
The TV personality did a series of live crosses and presented the Sunrise weather from the yard.
"The show ponies are in town at the moment," Mr Denyer joked.
Locals who tuned into this morning's show might have seen some familiar faces, as Mr Denyer interviewed locals including Shirley Ayres, Keith Crouch and Coben Ayres.
He and his crew travelled hundreds of kilometres to Roma and Mr Denyer said it was all about showing their viewers a slice of Australiana.
"Most people don't even know how our meat gets onto the plate so coming here was a chance to show people a part of how that happens," he said.
He said he was amazed watching the auctioneers and the bidders at work.
"It's like a completely different language, I have no idea what the hell just happened!" he said.
M.A.A. auctioneer Seamus Filan was the star of the day when Mr Denyer quizzed him on air about the ins and outs of selling cattle in the Southern Hemisphere's largest saleyards.
Seamus raised a laugh when Grant asked what the difference was between cows and bulls.
"One's got balls," Mr Filan said bluntly.
"I meant the flavour, I meant when you eat them!" Mr Denyer said laughing.
With most of the farmers towering over him, Mr Denyer said they clearly bred them big out in the country.
"Look at these guys, they're enormous!" he said.
After their visit to Roma, the Sunrise Crew packed up to their bags and headed south towards St George.
They will be broadcasting tomorrow's program from the famous Nindigully Pub.
