In September this year, Australia will be hosting its Third World Shorthorn Congress in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales.
Shorthorns were once described as ‘The breed that built Australia’. Although this term is no longer used to describe Shorthorns, this historic sentence remains as fact. The importance of Shorthorns as a breed in Australia has declined to about one third of the British breeds and about 10th of all breeds. However, of the more popular breeds in Australia today, many can trace their origins back to Shorthorns.
A series of tours has been developed to allow conference participants to modify their entry and exit points to develop a shorter tour program to suit their needs. The Main Conference Tour takes in a diverse range of Shorthorn Studs in south-eastern Australia. There is also a short Post Conference Tour Tasmania and an Eastern Extension.
