Media release: White Suffolk to feature in the 2015 Royal Melbourne Show Sheep Competition

To celebrate the breed’s 30th anniversary, the White Suffolk will be the feature in the 2015 Royal Melbourne Show Sheep Competition.

The White Suffolk is an Australian breed developed for a variety of conditions, celebrated for its elite lamb and high-quality wool.

Conducted annually by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the Sheep Competition takes place in front of a captivated crowd at Melbourne Showgrounds, as part of the Royal Melbourne Show.

The competition judging will be held from 19-21 September, with the Feature Show to draw crowds to the Livestock Pavilion on Saturday 19 September at 1pm.

The Judging for all-breeds will take place on Saturday 19 September, the coveted interbreed on Sunday 20 September and the schools competition will be held on Monday 21 September.

RASV has announced reduced entry and scanning fees for this year, to $20 per exhibit for RASV members and $15 per exhibit for schools, with savings to be made when bookings are made online.

Exhibitors across all breeds will have the opportunity to win back the cost of entry and more with prize money offered in all ordinary classes.

The Sheep and Wool Celebration Dinner on Sunday 20 September will also be a highlight of the Show, with exhibitors and industry professionals invited.

Interested participants are encouraged to take part in this opportunity to showcase their sheep in this iconic event, with entries open now until Friday 7 August.
