The RASV conducted a ‘Flock of the Year’ seminar at ‘Wirrinourt’ on 26 February in collaboration with AWI, Merino Victoria and local industry participants.
The intent is to bring back a meaningful Flock of the Year competition for wool producers in early 2015, to provide benchmarking and marketing opportunities for their commercial wool operations. Feedback from the seminar will assist in planning for 2015 event.
The RASV also announced the creation of a ‘March Shorn, Short Wool Ram Class’ for the 2014 Royal Melbourne Show, with the aim of reintroducing Merino exhibitors into the Sheep competition. The RASV will also participate in the Australian Sheep and Wool Show at Bendigo in July and at Sheepvention at Hamilton in August of this year.
