Esperance Farm Training Centre

Dylan Molloy with sheep
17 October 2016

Students attended the Perth Royal Show and the Esperance Show. The students prepare throughout the year, practising building fences, learning how to judge wool and sheep and learning how to lead cattle.

The first part of the Royal Show for students is farm skills held on the Thursday before the show opens. It is like the Olympics for farming! The students draft and drench sheep, weld, build a fence, use a GPS, identify and weeds and more. The students took part in the Grand Parade every day.

Students were judged in Junior Parading competitions and our cattle and sheep were judged in a variety of categories. We were awarded Champion Ewe for the British Breeds at the Perth Royal Show.

Many thanks to the staff and students who made this all possible.
