Australian Fleece Competition - Australian Sheep and Wool Show

Australian Fleece Competition

The Australian Fleece Competition is the largest fully measured fleece competition in the world, attracting more than 400 entries from 145 exhibitors.

The competition is a joint effort by Nutrien Ag Solutions, the Australian Sheep Breeders Association and the Australian Wool Testing Authority which is run in conjunction with the annual Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo, Victoria.

Everyone is delighted to be involved in the event in 2022 after restrictions due to COVID-19 were in place for 2020 and 2021.

Competition convenor, Nutrien Wool's Candice Cordy said this year the competition would celebrate its 21st year.

"The Australian Fleece Competition always brings entries of a very high standard, we were of course disappointed for everyone last year but we look forward to all the sheep breeders, wool growers, industry stakeholders and commercial producers making the trip to Bendigo this year" said Ms Cordy.
