Entries are currently being received for the 2017 Australian Fleece Competition. Run jointly by Landmark, AWTA and the Australian Sheep Breeders Association, the competition forms part of the Australian Sheep and Wool Show, held in Bendigo July 14th - 16th
The Australian Fleece Competition is the largest fully measured fleece competition in the world. The competition showcases a range of fleeces, representing every state and a wide range of breeds and microns. The performance class will again be part of the competition to allow the benchmarking and display of fleeces shorn at 6-8 month intervals.
At the conclusion of the competition, exhibitors have the opportunity to donate their fleeces to this year’s nominated charity, The Otis Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of exhibitors, sixteen national charities have shared in over $127,000 since the inception of the competition.
The closing date for entries to be received at the Brooklyn wool store is Friday 26th May 2017.
