2019 (138th) Victorian Sheep Show (Ballarat)

The 2019 Ballarat Sheep Show with the Feature Breed of Merino this year also includes our brand new format showcasing our Merino Ram Sale all in a one day format.

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

2019 sees the relaunch of the Victorian Sheep Show in its new home, Ballarat Showgrounds, alongside the annual Ballarat Ram Sale.

BAPS Sheep Committee led by Chair, Jonathan Tischler, and BAPS Executive Officer, Lucy Quartermain, are both enthused and excited by 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. Jonathan said he is looking forward to ‘offering more in the way of things to see and do. We hope to attract fans of woollen fashion, food and fibre as we look to showcase stall holders and products’.

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, 23 June 2019.

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, food and fashion. Come and join us.
