The region's peak sheep production association will host its annual conference dinner, with a focus on future opportunities for wool in fashion.

The ASHEEP Inaugural Conference Dinner, 'Farm to Fashion; Future Opportunities for Wool', will be held on Thursday, June 20, at the Esperance Bay Yacht Club.
