PUNARI'S Debbie and Bruce Nulty, Kingston, completed their first clean sweep of all major classes - winning supreme exhibit, champion ram and champion ewe in the Royal Adelaide Show Prime SAMM classes.
The stud has dominated at the Royal, taking home supreme exhibit in four of the past five years.
Mrs Nulty said her passion for showing Prime SAMM had not diminished, rather it had grown stronger.
"My family was joking with me the night before the classes and asking if I'd retire if I managed to win the ewe and ram - but I said no - definitely not!" she said.
Punari Roger - the stud's supreme champion exhibit - was a back-to-back champion, having also won the supreme sash at last year's event.
Mrs Nulty is eagerly awaiting this season's drop of lambs - some of which were sired by the ram.
The 2011-drop sire weighed 116 kilograms with 45 millimetres of eye muscle depth and 6cFAT and had wool measurements of 22.7 micron, 4.1 standard deviation, 18.1 coefficient of variation and 97.3 comfort factor.
He was sired by Jeffries 070013.
Judge Tony Abbey, Sandown SAMMs, Badgingarra, WA, said it was a very hard decision to choose between the champion ram and ewe.
"It was an excellent lineup of sheep," he said.
"The ewe was a beautiful example of a Prime SAMM, but the ram carried that muscle just a little bit more.
"The ram had very few faults, he was an outstanding sheep.
"He was evenly muscled with beautiful white wool, standing very correctly and would do very well in most studs."
Mrs Nulty said the stud would retain the ram to use within its own stud flock.
Reserve champion ram was won by Geoff and Leanne Thomas, Wonnara, Hallett.
Mr Abbey said he was a ram that still showed all the best characteristics and would do well at most studs.
The champion ewe was sired by a Jeffries 5016 ram, and out of a Punari 0552 ewe.
