Overall this was the biggest Sheepvention we have ever had.Will Kinghorn
Sheepvention organisers have been 'absolutely delighted' with the public response to the event being extended to a third day this year.
Organising committee president Will Kinghorn said the beautiful weather on Monday and Tuesday helped continue the momentum from the fantastic Sunday crowds.
"Sunday exceeded expectations with a great crowd and fantastic atmosphere," Mr Kinghorn said.
"This was backed up by an even bigger Monday with great interest in the sheep show and the new Innovation Hub."
"The feedback from traders has been very positive."
The ram sale on Tuesday was very strong with the auction recording total sales of $913,130.
A Poll Merino ram from South Australia set a new record price of $35,000 set during the auction, $5000 above the previous record.
Mr Kinghorn said the numbers for the event told much of the story with over 10,000 coffees sold across the three days, and nearly 1.2 tonnes of potatoes consumed with 3400 lamb burgers and pies.
"We used 18 tonnes of straw and 160 tonnes of woodchips, which will all now be made into garden mulch," he said.
The daily fashion parades saw the models walk 36 kilometers along the catwalk, over 4500 children participated in more then 20 kids activities, and there were more then 140 dog trials run.
