A young ram from Kuk­erin stud Golden Hills cap­tured the judge’s eye to se­cure the Ditch­burn fam­ily the grand cham­pion White Suf­folk ti­tle.

Stud co-prin­ci­pal Nathan Ditch­burn said the young ram, bred from Bun­dara Downs stock, had dis­played great po­ten­tial with mas­sive hindquar­ter mus­cle.

In award­ing the sash, judge Peter Angus said the com­pet­ing ewe had scored equally against the cham­pion ram in the as­sess­ment scan, but ob­jec­tively the ram had won be­cause of its sire ap­peal.

“It was a close com­pe­ti­tion with the ewe com­ing from a great breed­ing line, but the win­ning ram showed su­pe­rior breed type, with strength and stretch, that were all backed up by the ob­jec­tive measurements,” Mr Angus said.
