Beyond the Bale : June 2016
OFF FARM 27 FEATURE BREED Corriedales this year celebrated their centenary of exhibiting at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Given its 100 years of association with the Show, it was wonderfully fitting that there were exactly 100 Corriedales exhibited this year in the show ring. As the feature breed of the 2016 Show, there was a breed display stand in the Sheep & Wool Pavilion throughout the Show, supported by AWI. Pictured left are Michael Watkin (St Gregory's College, Campbelltown) holding the Grand Champion Corriedale ewe, with Tony Manchester (Roseville Corriedales, Kingsvale) holding the Grand Champion Corriedale ram. PHOTO: The Land. CELEBRITY VISITORS It was not only members of the public that were keen to visit the Sheep and Wool Pavilion. A-list celebrities Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban also dropped in and showed great interest in the sheep and wool exhibits. Pictured here is woolgrower Ben Watts (see page 33) from Molong in NSW showing the two stars one of his lambs from the AWI stand. Nicole was so impressed that she posted this picture on her Facebook site that has more than 10 million followers. IN THE MEDIA Jonesy & Amanda of WSFM Radio took their leading breakfast show on an outside broadcast to the Sydney Royal Easter Show where the duo tried their hand at shearing. Under the expert guidance of AWI’s shearing industry development coordinator Jim Murray and leading shearer Ian Elkins the radio hosts relayed their positive experiences live to their large Sydney audience. Pictured here is Amanda Keller with Ian Elkins.
