Stock & Land’s stud stock representative Justin Conlan said it went “really well”.

“I was really pleased with the way the exhibitors embraced the event and made an effort to display their sheep in the best way possible,” Mr Conlan said.

“The best thing for me about it was I enjoyed watching interactions with new customers and exhibitors.

“There was a relaxed feeling about the days, which meant we saw some really good shared conversations.”

He said it was great to see carloads of people visiting different studs.

“Commercial sponsors are considering having minibuses next year,” he said.

Mr Conlan was pleased with the support from seed stock producers and hoped next year more commercial exhibitors would participate too. He was “wrapped” with the support from commercial partners. The competition to win a Premium Paton 1.5 Tonne Trail Feeder has received “a lot” of enteries according to Mr Conlan. He continues to receive entries and the competition will be drawn next Monday.

Nick Luxton, Paton, is excited to be involved with the inaugural Stock & Land Sheep Week.

Mr Conlan said the coverage at stockandland.com.au and on the masthead’s social media accounts brought the event to those who couldn’t get along to the open days.

He thanked the exhibitors for embracing being in photos, videos and podcasts.

He plans to open registrations for next year’s event soon.
