Highlighting pathways to exciting careers in agriculture, veterinary science and agribusiness and cutting-edge technologies has become a major drawcard at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show.

With the world food production required to double present production rates to meet the demands of the predicted 9.8 billion world population by 2050, the hunt is on for the farmers, scientists and agribusiness champions of the future.

School leavers and their parents, farmers and teachers are invited to visit the one stop shop, seminar and demonstration hub showcasing food and fibre production career choices and AgTech features.

The popular 'Soils Make Sense' forums aimed at encouraging high school students and their parents to consider training and careers in a wide diversity of agribusinesses are held throughout the show.

The majority of universities, agricultural colleges and TAFE providers of agricultural and veterinary graduate, diploma and certificate courses in Southern Australia and New Zealand are represented.

State of the art agricultural technologies in virtual and augmented reality including a virtual reality farm, electronic livestock identification including hardware and software technologies and equipment are demonstrated and discussed throughout the Sheep & Wool Show.

Agriculture Victoria is sponsoring a series of seminars and demonstrations on the importance of electronic identification of sheep and goats.

Sheep Producers Australia and Australian Wool Innovation are sponsoring information sites and seminars of interest to all sheep and wool producers and the general public.
