The Adelaide Showgrounds have been buzzing with activity this week, with nearly 100 participants taking part in the fifth annual SA Sheep Expo.
Across three days, entrants ranging from 12 to 23 years gleaned a vast array of knowledge on sheep management, nutrition, handling, marketing and much more from a number of speakers across the industry.
Major prizes were presented at the conclusion on the event on Friday afternoon, with Mount Torrens' 21-year-old Claire Pearce taking out the Award of Excellence for the highest achiever in the senior category, winning a study tour to New Zealand.
Ms Pearce was "thrilled" to receive the big prize, having taken part in the Expo for the first time since its inception in 2016.
