National Fleece Competition - Launches for 2019

Entries are now open for the 2019 National Fleece Competition, the biggest benchmarking event of its kind in the country.

The competition is in its 19th year, and in the past 18 years, it has raised over $160,000 for national charities.

Last year, 251 fleeces from woolgrowers around the country who had entered the competition were auctioned at the Melbourne woolstores, and resulted in a record $18,500 donation for the Lyme Disease Association of Australia.

This year's nominated charity is the Cooperative Trials Group for Neuro-Oncology (COGNO), a not-for-profit network of clinicians, researchers, consumer representatives and allied health professionals who are dedicated to increasing awareness and improving treatment and end-of-life care for patients with brain tumours.
