The Minyip Agricultural and Pastoral Society president is looking to the future, after it was decided 2018's show would be the last.
The committee had issued a notice in April for a public meeting to decide the Minyip show's fate.
Community members voted to disband the show's committee at the meeting on Wednesday night.
Don Orr said the lack of personnel was the reason it could not continue.
"We're an older population, and at last year's show we really only had three male helpers, one was in his eighties, one in his seventies and I was 68," he said.
"Our secretary Iris Wiese passed away in November, and she was one of the people who ten people couldn't replace, her wealth of information about the show was incredible."
Mr Orr, who moved from Melbourne to retire five years ago, said he hoped to incorporate some events into next year's Minyip Show and Shine.
"Maybe they can have a flower show or a cake show. I'm working on that with organiser Dale Maggs at the moment," he said.
"For people who loved to bake and exhibit at the show, we want them to still have a chance to do that."
Mr Orr's advice to other Wimmera shows was to get parents of school-aged children in town involved if possible.
"If I could have got six of the school aged parents involved, we wouldn't have had a problem, but they're bringing up families and have sport and other things on their plate as well," he said.
"We had one or two people of that age involved a few years ago and it made a huge difference. They have different ideas to us older people, and they're more up and go."
The end of the Minyip show follows the Rupanyup Agricultural Show going into recess in 2017.
Darren Maddern, president of the Wimmera Agricultural Societies Association, said the group was undertaking several measures to preserve shows into the future.
"Last year we worked out a system where volunteers from one town's show would man the other's gates to address staff shortages," he said.
"We're also working on ideas to promote the Wimmera's agricultural shows together as a bulk package to save on costs."
The society supports 16 shows across an area encompassing Donald, St Arnaud, Kaniva, Hopetoun, Ararat and Goroke.
Mr Maddern said no one wanted to see any more shows fold as it affected the towns' economies.
"The horses that have come up for the Minyip run won't this year, and Jeparit aren't holding horses this year either. People from Melbourne instead of coming up for two weeks might instead decide to go to a NSW run where they can do 10 or 11 shows," he said.
"We've got to work together to help each other. We urge shows to pass on information to us and Victorian Agricultural Shows when they get new executives so we know which shows need the most help."
