The World Speckle Park Congress slated for 2021 has been postponed due to the impact and uncertainty of COVID-19.

Speckle Park International made the announcement to postpone the event originally scheduled to be held in conjunction with the 2021 Sydney Royal Show in April.

The Speckle Park breed will remain as a feature breed at Sydney along with an elite Speckle Park sale, youth events, and a Speckle Park feature steer competition.

Speckle Park International chairman Wayne Munt said due to uncertainty around recovery from the pandemic and resumption of international travel, it was unclear when the World Speckle Park Forum would be held.

"We are looking forward to having the global Speckle Park community come together for the World Speckle Park Congress, with significant participation from Canadians and New Zealanders," Mr Munt said.

"This has been a difficult however prudent decision to ensure the efforts of organisers, and sponsorship support is rewarded through maximum participation in the event.

"Speckle Park International is grateful for the hard work already completed by the SPI World Congress Sub-Committee, and look forward to our breed benefiting from their contribution when the World Speckle Park Congress proceeds."
