Ewe heard it here first: hundreds of students have had their furry friends judged in The NSW Merino Wether Challenge. After spending half the year preparing their animals, today they were proud to be on show.
Over 550 students from 60 schools along with their dedicated teachers participated in the event.
What a joy to watch the young members of the Bralca.com team running an event that invites the next generation of land managers to open their mind to opportunities in the sheep and wool industry and beyond. The NSW School Wether Challenge is an excellent example of productive partnerships working together for positive outcomes. The partners included Australian Wool Innovation and NSW Stud Merino Breeders as major sponsors along with NSW Department of Primary Industries, the NSW Department of Education and many more smaller contributors and volunteers to make this event a success.
