2018 Sheep and Wool Show bigger than ever
THE Australian Sheep and Wool Show is the largest show of its type in the world, and this year more than 30,000 visitors are expected.
Spanning three days, some 350 stall holders, along with 2700 sheep and 5000 farmers, will head to Bendigo’s Prince of Wales Showgrounds for the annual event.
Each year, the best of the best breeders and fibre producers gather to talk industry – while also celebrating fine food, fibre, fashion and the mighty Australian sheep.
It is a time for the nation’s best farmers to compete for the top championship ribbons; the country’s finest fleeces will be judged; leading wool fashion will be displayed; the growing craft market will form Australia’s largest one-stop fibre market; a major retail shopping precinct comes to life and the excitement of seeing premium stock sales live are all part of the show experience.
This year, Merino sheep will be celebrated as the feature breed – a fitting tribute to the animals that have played such an important role in the foundation of the Australian sheep and wool industry.
Other drawcards at the 2018 event will be the shearing displays, the young stud masters’ muster, the Soils Make Sense forum – along with plenty of sheep and cattle action daily.
So it doesn’t matter what you are interested in, there is something for everyone at the 2018 Australian Sheep and Wool Show.
