Four delegates at LambEx 2018 will share in the largest Win a Ewe Competition LambEx has ever held with 100 ewes up for grabs! The winners will share in either 50 Merino, 25 Ultra White, 25 Kojak or 25 Kelso ewes.

The Stud Merino Breeders Association of Western Australia, Hillcroft Farms, Breeders Best Genetics, Kelso and Fairfax Agricultural Media have teamed up to give producers the chance to win $10,000 worth of ewes at LambEx 2018 in Perth from August 5-7.

LambEx 2018 Chair Bindi Murray said all producers had to do to win was to fill out an entry form published in Fairfax Agricultural Media’s rural weeklies – Farm Weekly, The Land, Stock & Land, Queensland Country Life and Stock Journal, then be present when the prize was drawn on August 7 at 3.30pm, at the conclusion of LambEx 2018.

“The prize giveaway is an exciting opportunity to take home some top-quality livestock and I would like to thank all of those who have either donated animals or sponsored the competition,” Mrs Murray said.

“The Australian sheep and lamb industry is made up of a diverse mix of industries and breeds, which is why the committee has worked so hard to develop a competition which will be relevant to all producers. With prizes like this on offer, there’s no excuse to not buy a ticket and enter!”

Derella Downs Pyramid Poll Merino Stud’s Scott Pickering, Cascade, WA, is a ewe donor and said it was a great opportunity to source some excellent Merino ewes from leading WA studs.

“The industry has never been in better shape with high wool and meat prices, so it is an ideal time for young people to enter the industry,” Mr Pickering said.

“The prize gives producer delegates an ideal opportunity to boost their flock genetics, with an outstanding line-up of ewes.”

The LambEx committee are very grateful for the generous donation of these sheep by sponsors – Hillcroft Farms, Breeders Best Genetics, Kelso and the Stud Merino Breeders Association of WA.

Stud Merino Breeders Association of WA have sourced Merino ewes from Quailerup West Merinos, Eastville Park, Derella Downs and Pyramid Poll, Ejanding, Wiringa Park and Neearra.

To enter the prize giveaway, producers simply need to:

  • Fill out and post the competition entry form to the address on the Fairfax entry forms published in Fairfax rural weeklies
  • Register to attend LambEx 2018

Multiple entries will be accepted but each entry must contain an original entry form and must be posted as required in a separate stamped envelope. A freight subsidy of $500 will be provided for WA producers, and up to $1200 for producers outside of WA.

Early bird registrations are open until June 4 for LambEx 2018, to register visit
