In very changing weather conditions and with tricky, but ideal sheep , the trial conducted over the 3 days of Agfest was well supported and enjoyed by all. Agfest is the biggest public event in Tasmania, averaging 60,000 plus attendance. This gives the TWSDA a wonderful opportunity to promote the sport of dog trialing. The afternoon crowd was given a rare treat watching Somerville NELL and Bernard McGLASHAN put on a master class in sheep handling to win the Open trial.
