About the Expo
The SA Sheep Expo initiative is an answer to filling the gap that has been identified in junior development in the sheep and lamb industry.
The SA Sheep Expo is all about bringing young sheep enthusiasts together to discuss and learn about the skills and technologies now available to run successful and sustainable stud and commercial enterprises, and provide exposure to the career opportunities on offer and the pathways in which young people can take to attain a profession in the industry.
The Expo is held over 3 days during the SA April school holidays and is designed for high school age participants. All participants stay on-site for the three days and participate in an interactive program specifically designed to suit each age group.
Entry to the Expo is open to young sheep enthusiasts aged 12 the 23 years, with the age group split as follows:
- Junior - 12 to 14 years
- Intermediate - 15 to 17 years
- Senior - 18 to 23 years
Participants will also be able to compete in age groups to maximise learning outcomes with major incentives and prizes up for grabs in all age groups.
