I would like to congratulate the team behind the Australian Sheep and Wool Show on such a fantastic event at the weekend.
Australian Stud Sheep Breeders Association CEO Margot Falconer and her team have done an amazing job to bring together the show, which was expected to attract around 10,000 people per day for each of the three days.
The work of volunteers was impressive.
I was privileged to be able to speak to people from right across northern Victoria, and from other parts of Australia at the show.
I was also delighted to attend the Women In Wool lunch, hear some inspiring guest speakers and meet women who are all connected with the industry in one way or another.
The show is unique in that it brings together all aspects of sheep and wool. It showcases the industry’s best. There’s everything from stunning purebred sheep, to fleece competitions, sheep dog trials, gorgeous crafts, food and fashion.
This is only the second year that the show has been back since it was closed down for COVID, but I think it’s fair to say the 2023 Australian Sheep and Wool Show was a winner.
Well done everyone!
