ASHEEP has planned this event in consideration of WA Government health regulations to reduce the risk of people transmitting COVID-19 or being declared close contacts. Registration, masks and proof of vaccination are mandatory. The shed is a large, open-walled space with plenty of airflow and includes outdoor covered yards. We’ll have spare masks on hand if needed and plenty of hand sanitiser. Please sign in on arrival and observe social distancing. Do not attend this event if you have cold or flu symptoms.


Please observe farm biosecurity and arrive in clean boots & clothes.

What to Bring

Face mask, vaccination certificate.

Personal Accessibility

Please note that this field day will be in a shearing shed with a concreted floor. The main area of the shed is accessible to people in wheelchairs, however during the shearing shed inspection we will move into areas of the shed that include steps and uneven / soft / rough terrain. A toilet is available on site but it was not constructed as an accessible toilet and has no hand rail. If you have accessibility requirements and need something additional for you to safely attend the event, please call ASHEEP on the number below and we will endeavour to find a solution.
