The year's SA Sheep Expo attracted more than 140 participants for the three-day event held at the Adelaide Showground.

Since the event's inception four years ago, entry numbers have jumped to 140, including 20 sheep enthusiasts from Victoria.

For the fourth year, sisters Charlotte and Annie McCarthy have travelled from Yalpara Station, Orroroo, to attend the expo.

Charlotte said she was eager to understand where SA's sheep industry was headed in the future.

"You can never learn enough about how to work with them properly," she said.

Junior participant, Annie, was excited to meet new people and learn about how to build a career in the sheep industry.

"I love working with sheep and we help dad to muster, draft and shear sheep at home," she said.

Chairman Brenton Lush said participants experienced commercial and stud aspects of the sheep industry throughout the expo.
