2012 Royal Bathurst Show

There was a small showing of Corriedales at the Royal Bathurst Show in April this year with two studs showing about 20 sheep. The champion ewe and ram went to Roselea and the reserve champions to Esbank. Although the numbers were down from previous years it was a very enjoyable show and I would encourage other studs to consider attending. It is a two day show with judging on Friday and a junior judging on the Saturday. Arrivals for sheep can be done on the Thursday or before 8:30am on the Friday. Sheep can be loaded from around 4:00pm on the Saturday. The facilities are great and feedback is always good. If you have 40 to 50 sheep there then you have really good numbers to stand out and get noticed.
