The Rabobank National Merino Sheep Show and Ram Sale, Dubbo, is the most prestigious Merino show in the country. It draws exhibitors and buyers from across Australia and overseas.
FLOCK EWE COMPETITION: The Flock Ewe competition, designed specifically for the commercial producer, is returning for its second year. It is pleasing that the major sponsors, Jemalong Wool and Clipex, will again be supporting the competition. This enables the committee to offer excellent prizes with cash and a drafting module available.
COCKTAIL PARTY: There’s the social event of the year with the cocktail party where the Rabobank Australian Supreme Merino Ram is named. The fleeces are also well worth seeing and we’re expecting big things in that section. This year, people can donate their show fleece to our chosen charity, The Shepherd Centre.
SCHOOL WETHER CHALLENGE: We also have the next generation battling it out in the School Wether Challenge and Merino and Fleece judging competitions. We’re giving the next generation a wealth of experience and later on they may join our industry.
