This year we will be welcoming a lot more sheep — and shepherds — to the Festival. The Manitoba Sheep Association will be setting up in the barn adjacent to our venue for their annual sheep show and sale on Saturday September 14. This is where commercial sheep farmers from around the province gather to show off their best animals and buy new stock. We will get to enjoy a barn full of sheep and the excitement of a sale. Hopefully some of the MSA shepherds, who concentrate mainly on the meat side of sheep raising, will wander through our bustling market and wool show and increase their appreciation of wool!
We are pleased to have the opportunity to share our event with this organization so we can work together to support sheep farmers in Manitoba.
