Australia is the largest producer of wool in the world, with millions of sheep shorn across the country every year!

The woolliest blue ribbon all-stars will compete for glory in the Livestock Pavilion culminating in the prestigious All Breeds Sheep Interbreed.

Our 2019 sheep feature breed is the historic Wiltshire Horn, a breed renowned for its meat and named for its terrific set of horns. Come to the Livestock Pavilion and say hello to this terrific English breed.

You can get even closer to sheep of all breeds and sizes at the Show. Cuddle a lamb in the expanded Biostime Animal Nursery and try your hand at shearing a sheep in the Livestock Pavilion.
