The Hamilton and Western District Sheep Show is held as part of Sheepvention Rural Expo. The 2022 feature breed is Poll Dorset. Approximately 1000 sheep exhibit each year.
The Hamilton and Western District Sheep Show reflects the diversity and history of sheep breeding in Australia, with representations from the heritage breeds such as the Lincoln and English Leicesters, the prime lamb breeds, dual purpose breeds and the wool breeds.
The Merino section augments the strong representation of the merino breed throughout the Sheepvention site, the Sheep Show, the Ram Sale, and individual stud trade displays.
For the past 2 years, the inaugural Ram Sale has been held online. This year, the Ram Sale will take place in the Sheep Pavilion as part of Sheepvention Rural Expo.
