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 Weekly Times Livestock Pavilion from Saturday 23 – Monday 25 September, with the prestigious All Breeds Sheep Interbreed to take place on Sunday 24 September.
Look out for this year’s sheep feature breed, the Hampshire Down, an old heritage breed dating back to 1861, with a rich dark brown face and matching feet. Can you spot one?
To get even closer to sheep of all breeds and sizes, cuddle a lamb in the Jayco Animal Nursery, try your hand at shearing a sheep in The Farmhouse or stop by The Animal Farmyard in the middle of the Show to see sheep in their paddocks as they would be at home.WHEN AND WHERE TO FIND SHEEP
