The bi-annual Australian Poll Dorset Conference is a 2-day event for all members and associates. It is an opportunity to learn more about the lamb industry, the role that Poll Dorsets hold within it, and information relevant to sheep breeding and marketing.

The conference is rotated throughout Australia, having previously been held in Hamilton, Wagga Wagga, Launceston and this year was hosted in Adelaide.
