THE 2019 SA Rural Media Awards was held in Adelaide on Friday, where Stock Journal took home multiple awards and special mentions.

In the first awards handed out, Stock Journal livestock editor Catherine Miller was awarded best Royal Adelaide Show story, for her piece on the nearly 60-year relationship between the Strathalbyn-based Radstock Romney Marsh sheep stud and the show.

The judges felt the story was well written and in a manner that highlighted that despite personal hardships, the third generation of the Brewer family continues to maintain active links with the Royal Adelaide Show.

Best show photograph went to Stock Journal freelancer Jacqui Bateman, who's photo of the Border Leicester supreme interbreed ewe and ram and their owners was "hard to fault".

Stock Journal's Alisha Fogden, Vanessa Binks and Elizabeth Anderson also received commended and highly commended awards in photography and print.
