Honours in the strong wool section judged by Russell Jones, Dariwell, Merinos, Trundle saw the ram grand championship awarded to the four tooth March-shorn ram paraded by David Zouch, stud manager, Hollow Mount, Bigga.

"He is my type of sheep," Mr Jones said.

"Thick, long stapled with a bold crimp and soft wool."

Mr Jones said they are the sheep which fill bales of wool through tough seasons. 

"He is a very attractive ram with a big chest and deep barrell with a nice long-stapled fleece," he said.

The reserve grand champion was exhibited by the Alcock family, Greenland, Bungarby.

The ewe grand championship was awarded to the Alcock family, Greenland, Bungarby.
