NZ Ewe Hogget Competition - 2018

This nationwide iconic competition is now in its 22nd year and entries are welcomed.     

This unique hogget competition continues to give 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’, - what better way to assess your progress?

The Competition thanks our sponsors Alliance Group, Boehringer Ingelheim, New Zealand Sheepbreeders, NZ Farmer, Seed Force, FMG, and PGG Wrightson Livestock who believe in this grass roots competition.

We welcome our new sponsors – FMG & Seed Force

Our National Judges this year are Blair Robertson, Adrian Arnold, and Keith Hamill.

ENTRIES CLOSE 29th MARCH, with judging to follow, and the National Final Judging to take place in the North Island, followed by the South Island. Get your ENTRY FORM here.
