Australian Sheep and Wool Show
Fingers crossed, it looks as though the Bendigo Dohne Tent will be up and running again this year from July 15 to 17.
It is hoped that the new education based  revamp prepared 2 years ago involving both Moama Grammar and Longerenong Agricultural College will be the take home feature.
The shearing period of March 15 to 30 has been nominated, 2 and 3 year old Sires will be used for the main events.
The Show Committee would also like to take the opportunity to acknowledge and thank the marquee sponsors whose support has been encouraging;
•             Elders
•             Nutrien Ag Solutions
•             Fox & Lillie
•             G Schneider Australia
•             Sheepmatters
