A young and “meaty” White Dorper ram lamb was judged grand champion against an older ewe.
Kaya stud’s stable young ram impressed judge Sandy Forbes with its meaty hindquarter.
She said she usually favoured age on an animal, but the young ram had meat and muscle in all the right places.
“I usually have difficulty choosing young animals over older ones. This sheep not only had meat but also showed the right muscle, great topline and excellent presentation,” she said.
“It’s a well put together exhibit and the breeder should be proud of what they have achieved. It’s a prime example of everything that is right in a ram lamb.”
