With the last weekend of the 2018 National Western Stock Show upon us, the Junior Breeding Sheep and Open Wool Show was an event attended by many exhibitors and guests. 

The show began with two divisions of showmanship including nearly 50 entries. In the Breeding Sheep Show, approximately 300 junior and open breeding sheep were shown. 

“Numbers are up. This is the most entries we’ve had in almost 11 years,” said Erin Dorsey, National Western Stock Show Livestock Coordinator. 

With uprise in numbers, one can only imagine what the next year’s shows might look like. More competition and stronger numbers, the breeding sheep and wool show is sure to be a the best of the best in the future.
