Fostering the improvement of all sheep breeds and providing a unified body whose collective voice has a beneficial effect on the total NZ sheep industry

New Zealand Ewe Hogget Competition

This unique hogget competition gives farmers the opportunity to benchmark their flocks against others at both local and national level, as well as giving them the chance to compare different farming systems and learn from other competitors as well as the judging panel. All farmers are invited to enter and ‘give it a go’, and what better way to assess your progress?

“I continue to be in awe of the passion and commitment of the many people involved with this competition who contact farmers encouraging entries, giving up their time and effort for the duration of this event” Greg Burgess, New Zealand Sheepbreeders’ Assn.
