WHEN awarding the supreme breed exhibit to Greg Good, Bowen Suffolks, Millthorpe, NSW, for his champion ram, judge Andrew Frick, Gypsum Hill Suffolk stud, Padthaway, SA, noted the outstanding qualities of the animal.

"He had all of the commercial attributes necessary for the industry, he had good conformation, shape and structure, as well as sire ability,” Mr Frick said.

“He had a 'look at me' quality, that you see in any sort of champion, like a champion race horse or champion football player."

The June 2016 drop ram, whom Mr Good has named ‘Trumper’, was further noted by Mr Frick for his capacity to make efficient use of available feed and convert to meat.

“He is not too tall, but has great depth,” Mr Frick said.

The reserve champion paraded by Georgina Close, Closeup stud, Finley, NSW had good width through to his backend.

Champion Suffolk ewe was awarded to David Leischke, Otto Suffolks, Walla Walla, NSW for his July 2016 daughter of a New Zealand sire.

“She is a deep and well muscled ewe,” Mr Frick said. 

“This is close to the strongest lineup I have judged over a long period.”
