Pulled straight from the pad­dock, a Shirlee Downs ewe beat an im­pres­sive field of Prime SAMM ri­vals to be­come grand cham­pion.

The ewe, pre­vi­ously the in­ter­breed cham­pion at the Perth Royal Show, stood out in the ring, ac­cord­ing to judge War­ren Gar­lick.

Mr Gar­lick said the ewe had an im­pres­sive fleece and car­case, and su­pe­rior struc­ture.

Stud co-prin­ci­pal Chris Squiers said the ewe had been a cham­pion from the first day he saw her.

“She not only ex­hibits ex­cel­lent struc­ture and show but also has a high topline and im­pres­sive feet,” he said.

“We’ll be tak­ing her to com­pete at the Royal Show again.”
