Sheep Handling Challenge


 “With the motto ‘Investing In The Future’ president of the WA Stud Merino Breeders Association, Steven Bolt, said, the Western Australian merino industry promotion this year has included introducing events that encourage and engage students with merino sheep.   

AASMB President, Georgina Wallace also strongly encouraged  other Merino event organisers to consider developing a similar Sheep Handling Competition to that initiated in WA..  She said, “this competition challenges teams of young people to visually judge and shear Sheep, handle wool on the shearing board and undertake carcass assessment. This competition has been very popular in WA and we believe it has great merit and will benefit the industry across all states.”
