Sheepvention Rural Expo brings together farming, competitions, innovation, entertainment and paddock to plate education. This event is run by the Hamilton Pastoral and Agricultural Society, attracting over 25,000 visitors to the show and is held in the first week of August each year at the Hamilton Showgrounds. Some of the events included in the show are the Ram Sale, Sheep Show, Victorian Farm Dogs Competition, Livestock Logic Feed Competition, Inventions Competition and the Kids Muster Trail.

The Ram Sale is a unique part of the show, where five rams are sold to Victorian and Interstate vendors in order to demonstrate the diversity of sheep in Australia. The Farm Dogs Competition also attracts huge crowds as does the Sheep Show. The latter is divided into breed categories with the winning sheep awarded a trophy. Other shows at the Sheepvention Rural Expo include the Livestock Logic Feed Competition, Rain Gauge Competition, Wool & Crafts Competition and the Inventions Competition.

The Kids Muster Trail focusses on the education of paddock to plate concepts and sustainability in farming as well as in our own backyards – in a very fun and engaging way.

Sheepvention Rural Expo also showcases sustainability and ethical farming practices in Victoria.

In 2020, the Hamilton P&A Society celebrated 162 years of operation and 42 years of running Sheepvention in Hamilton, Victoria.

Sheepvention Rural Expo is a vital and historical event for Hamilton, Victoria.

Sheepvention 2021 will be held on 1, 2 and 3 August.
