The Agricultural Societies Council of NSW Ltd  (ASC)

The Agricultural Societies Council of NSW, now in its 90th year,  has been in operation since 1929 as the parent body of 195 Agricultural Show Societies in the State of New South Wales. 

The primary role of the Agricultural Societies Council of NSW is to provide support, service, development and ideas for growth to our members.  The Board of the Agricultural Societies

Council is made up of Directors from across the state of NSW.


Our goals are many, however they include

.  To promote and protect the pastoral, agricultural horticultural and industrial resources of Australia through promotion and protection of Pastoral, Agricultural and Horticultural Societies in NSW;

.  Education of young people through the livestock judging competitions held throughout the State, culminating in State Finals at the Sydney Royal each Easter;

.  Promote the involvement of youth in shows by holding competitions for young people and encouraging them to participate in Show Societies and Agricultural Youth Groups.
