RAS of NSW Sheep Hoof & Hook Competition at Illabo Show - Secondary schools
The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Sheep Hoof & Hook competition for secondary schools at Illabo Show provides students with an opportunity to apply husbandry and feeding practices to their sheep and have their results judged on the hook.
By preparing sheep for a market date ( Illabo Show 13th October 2018), students understand the concept of preparation for a show/sale window and how their management processes will assist or prevent the stock being market ready.
Students have the opportunity to examine the fleece and carcase traits of the sheep they have raised and shown and compare with other animals of the same and different breeds at the show.
Entries close Saturday, 6th October 2018. For more information contact Leanne Belling on 0428 245 468.
