The Australian Sheep and Wool Show was held over three days at the Bendigo Showgrounds on Friday 17th – Sunday 19th July. Six Certificate II Agriculture students exhibited our Polwarth Stud Sheep over the weekend. They complete a unit ‘Plan to Exhibit Livestock’ which involves the students completing their entries, preparing and clipping the sheep in the weeks prior to the show. Students also assisted other Polwarth breeders with their exhibits throughout the day and exchanged breeding notes with experienced stud owners who have been breeding and exhibiting for more than three generations.
