The Sydney Royal Sheep & Fleece Show is one of the largest and most prestigious Sheep & Fleece Shows in Australia. Each year over 700 sheep and 100 fleeces are exhibited at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. There are three major categories in the RAS Sheep & Fleece Show: Merinos, Meat and Dual Purpose sheep and the Fleece Section. Merinos are bred for their fine quality wool while meat breed sheep are bred for their meat eating qualities; their wool is of less significance. Dual purpose sheep produce quality wool and meat. Winning a Sydney Royal ribbon especially a Champion, is highly valued and keenly contested by Exhibitors who come from all over NSW, Queensland and South Australia.

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) supports the Sheep Hoof & Hook competition at Illabo Show. Exhibitors enter 10 sheep per pen, have them judged live and then judged again on the hook. The results are invaluable to assess sire performance in weight for age, but also enables them to more accurately assess and apply the latest husbandry and feeding practices on their sheep back at the farm.
