Pro­ducer of the Year

Countryman - - LIVESTOCK - Over­all win­ner

main cri­te­ria for the top awards in the car­case com­pe­ti­tion was based on the con­sis­tency of de­liv­ery of pro­duc­ers’ en­tire lamb turn-off.

“The sweet spot is an 18 to 26kg car­case with a fat score of be­tween two and three,” he said.

“This com­pe­ti­tion has an au­to­matic en­try to all our pro­duc­ers who have a min­i­mum of 250 cross­bred or Merino lambs.”

Mr David­son said a to­tal num­ber of 64,000 lambs were part of the com­pe­ti­tion cal­cu­la­tions, with bonus points given for spring de­liv­er­ies. “We achieved a 69 per cent for lambs that met spec­i­fi­ca­tion,” he said.

“This year’s top three plac­ings un­der each of the five cat­e­gories were very close in point tal­lies and it was great to have re­turn con­sis­tency from pro­ces­sors in­clud­ing last year’s over­all win­ners, the Quar­ter­maine fam­ily, who fin­ished sec­ond in their cat­e­gory.” PD Lynch & Co, Hy­den
