Rib­bons re­ward fre­quent ferry trips

Tasmanian Country - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

PAUL Day has en­joyed a great year at in­ter­state shows – and he has been mak­ing the Spirit of Tas­ma­nia op­er­a­tors happy.

He had three re­turn trips on the Spirit fer­ries over one month, tak­ing sheep to the Royal Ade­laide Show, the Elite White Suf­folk Show and sale at Bendigo and the Royal Mel­bourne Show.

The owner of Fara­day Park Poll Dorset and Sun­ny­banks White Suf­folk studs made a tri­umphant de­but at Mel­bourne, bring­ing home the sash for supreme Poll Dorset ex­hibit.

“I judged here last year and . de­cided I’d bring some sheep over this year,” Mr Day said af­ter his win.

“Com­ing to these shows is a great way of pub­li­cis­ing your stock. Be­ing in Tas­ma­nia it’s hard to get peo­ple from the main­land to come to view your stock and sell them; that’s the rea­son we do it re­ally – to sell sheep.”

At the studs’ an­nual sale on Novem­ber 12, the of­fer­ing will in­clude 30 Poll Dorset rams, 30 White Suf­folk rams, three White Suf­folk ewes, one Cahrol­lais and eight Charol­lais crosses.
