The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) has announced that the McLennan McColl Flock of the Year competition will not run in 2017 due to low interest in participation.
RASV will be consulting with sheep producers and industry to discuss future opportunities to support key regional on-farm events and promote Victoria’s flocks.
The McLennan-McColl Flock of the Year competition is presented by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria in partnership with Merino Victoria.
Named in honour of two of the Merino industry’s most well-respected, wool producer, Neil McLennan and sheep classer, Keith McColl, the award celebrates and assists with improving the quality of Victoria’s merino ewe flocks.
Judges will travel to entered properties on the nominated judging day to view participants' selected replacement maiden ewes and sires used for joining, with visitors welcome to view each flock.
