2018 Golden Fleece Competition

Do you hold the Golden Fleece? 

British Wool has launched the 2018 Golden Fleece Competition, designed to showcase the exceptional quality of British produced wool. 

Managed by British Wool in association with JG Animal Health, producers registered with British Wool can enter the competition via British Wool’s network of 11 grading depots. Qualifying fleece competitions will also be held at 17 agricultural shows across the UK during 2018. 

The competition aims to showcase the exceptional quality of British wool, highlighting the importance of fleece presentation in maximising the value of wool.

Judging will take place across 3 stages, with finalists invited to a presentation ceremony in Bradford in December, all receiving a £125 product voucher from JG Animal Health.

The 2018 National Golden Fleece Champion will receive a competition salver and £1000 prize money. Reserve Champion will receive £500.

Competition entry forms are available from all British Wool depots or to download here and print.
