Sheep and Goats Section

Including the ever popular wool and fibre expo (including unique breeds, artisanal products, fashion shows and sheep shearing); indications points to the 2018 Royal Show sheep and goat section attracting a healthy entry.

Aside from goats, sheep breeds likely to be included in the programme include Dormers, Dorper, Hampshire Down, Ile de France, SA Mutton Merino and Suffolk.

The Show will be hosting the Hampshire Down National Championships.

With a price of R3000 per kg, the Royal Show holds the world record for lamb ‘on the hook’ and the carcass auction scheduled for Tuesday, 29 May could possibly test this limit. This extraordinarily exciting event is open to all.
