Representing Western Australia: Hayden Baker (24)
Hayden is the Western Australia state finalist at the 2021 Agricultural Shows Australia National Young Judges finals held at the Royal Queensland Show. Agricultural Shows of Australia sat down with Hayden to learn a bit about his fascination with fleece.
I hail from Katanning in WA where I grew up in farming. Today I work for a wool broker as a wool and livestock buyer. I started getting involved with shows and showing while I was at agricultural college in Narrogin and continued to go to shows to help two studs show their sheep.
The main person to get me involved was Collin Batt from Wagin.
My favourite show in Australia is Wagin Woolarama because I get to catch up with a lot of people that I dont get to see very often.
My most embarrassing show moment was getting dragged around down the lanes by an Ile de France ram!
