The best-looking sheep will go head to head at the Albany Agricultural Show next month. Nine sheep breeds will be on display as judges carefully scour their wool and structure to determine the highest-yielding in each category. Sheep section councillor Kate Pritchett said expert judges within the industry will determine the highest-yielding sheep. “We get professionals to come in and do the judging confirmation, wool and meat production,” Ms Pritchett said. “The breeds that will feature at the show include Poll Dorsets, Dorpers, Suffolks and Corriedales amongst heaps of others.” Amid the sheep judging, a variety of events will take place throughout the showcase. “We’ll be running a fashion parade which focuses on wool products and we’re hoping to have a barbecue with sheep meat,” Ms Pritchett said. “Local stores like Hub in Albany will provide woollen garments and three times a day people will parade them at the fashion parade. “And we fill up the livestock pavilion with the sheep-associated type products, like jumpers, made by wool spinners at the pavilion.” The sheep and wool section has also partnered with local charity The Darcy Effect. “We’re getting cake with The Darcy Effect which is run by a local farmer who has a child that has epilepsy,” Ms Pritchett said. “So we will be fundraising for that throughout the event.” Trophies for the award-winning sheep will be presented on Saturday November 11 in the Livestock Pavilion at about 3pm. All sheep entered in all classes must be from a registered stud and there is a fee of $5.50.
