An interactive 3-day program is prepared by the SA Sheep Expo Committee. The program includes hands-on sessions, demonstrations and presentations from leading industry experts. Each year a focus is given to a key topic of the industry, be it ewes, rams, or lambs, with technologies incorporated into each years theme. Both wool and meat facets of the sheep industry are then represented in the program, with a range of sessions delivered by reputable industry specialists.
The full program will be available here closer to the event, but at this stage the 2021 Program will include:

Participants compete in age groups to maximise learning outcomes with major incentives being a study tour to the New Zealand and sponsored education bursaries for seniors, as well as other prizes for each age group.
The SA Sheep Expo is coordinated by an enthusiastic and passionate organising committee comprising of a number of stud and commercial sheep producers and industry people who have a depth of knowledge in the sheep and livestock industry.
