Countryman - - WAGIN WOOLORAMA - Bob Gar­nant

The Hogg fam­ily, of Na­van­vale stud in Wil­liams, won the supreme grand cham­pion sash at Make Smok­ing His­tory Wa­gin Woolorama with their medium-wool ram.

The four-tooth ram, Na­van­vale Holty, was named af­ter for­mer long-time stud classer Gra­ham Holton, who re­cently re­tired af­ter many years of look­ing af­ter the Hogg fam­ily’s stud flock.

Judge Wayne But­ton, of Ma­nunda stud, Tam­min, said the Na­van­vale ram car­ried rich nour­ish­ing wool with long sta­ple when it won in a class of 10.

Af­ter tak­ing out the cham­pion ti­tle, Mr But­ton re­ferred to the ram’s lus­trous wool, good top line and how it stood on its feet af­ter it was sashed with the grand cham­pion Merino ram rib­bon.
