2018 Australian Fleece Competition

21 February 2018

Entries are currently being received for the 2018 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 20th - 22nd.

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 Lyme Disease Association of Australia.  Thanks to the generosity of exhibitors, sixteen national charities have shared in over $145,000 since the inception of the competition.

The closing date for entries to be received at the Brooklyn wool store is Friday 1st June 2018.
