SA Sheepdog Trials - Barmera

UNDER REVIEW

Barmera's SA Sheepdog Trials will again be held on the June long weekend (Thurs to Sun) on the Barmera oval at the bottom of Barwell Ave.

The Sheepdog Trials don't only provide a great public spectacle but also promote a wide human interest in the working sheepdog amongst sheep breeders and the general public and encourage, develop and maintain a high standard of working sheepdog.

Another fun feature of the Barmera trials is the 'running of the sheep' on Saturday morning in the main street of Barmera.

Barmera also hosts the SA Country Music Festival & Awards on this weekend so there is plenty to see and do away from the Trials.
