Beyond the Bale : June 2016
26 OFF FARM SHEEP SHEARING Sheep shearing demonstrations attracted large crowds throughout the duration of the show. AWI’s shearing industry development coordinator Jim Murray led a team of shearers, bringing a proud part of Australia’s rural culture to life, and reminding those in the crowd that there is work for shearers in all corners of Australia. About 2,000 people each day helped shear sheep and collect wool, while many others watched on, listening to yarns about where wool comes from.

AWI was a partner of this year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show, supporting the many activities in the Sheep and Wool Pavilion that was abuzz for the two weeks of the Show, and which attracted around 750,000 people through the gates. SYDNEY ROYAL EASTER SHOW FUN AND FACTS FOR ALL THE FAMILY AWI’s activities at the Sydney Royal Easter Show provided the opportunity for AWI to not only speak personally with Australian woolgrowers, but also educate Sydney’s city folk on the importance of Australia’s wool industry and to bridge the gap from sheep to shop. Education was a key focus at AWI’s exhibits, with staff providing information on the wool supply chain and AWI initiatives such as the Wool4School fashion design initiative.
