2021 Victorian Sheep Show

20th June 2021

The 2021 Ballarat Sheep Show is back once again.

The Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society Inc. (BAPS) has a brand new format for their Sheep Show now to be held

2021 sees the relaunch of the Victorian Sheep Show in its new home, Ballarat Showgrounds, alongside the annual Ballarat Ram Sale.

BAPS Sheep Committee is excited about taking this event on and changing the format. They are working towards a ‘bigger and better sheep show’ attracting more entries and exhibitors for both the Show and Sale.

Since 1881, the Sheep Show has been a place where wool growers and prime lambs were showcased, and in the last 40 years an annual Ram Sale was introduced to give producers an option to sell off farm.

Brand new date and format with the rebranding of former Ballarat Sheep Show as Victorian Sheep Show, and the Merino Ram Sale being opened up with consideration to all breeds being able to sell, 20th June 2021.

Whilst just a one day event BAPS’s focus is on building on this rebranded Sheep Show to build and event that will become an extravaganza showcasing all sheep breeds, fibre, and food. Come and join us.
