Dubbo Show 2015

The Show was very well supported by the NSW breeders with nine studs exhibiting 74 sheep.  The studs included Roseville, Rose-Lea, Badgally, Tymec, Billigaboo, Eskbank and Merrigal, with two new exhibitors, Yullundry and Jesmond.

The sheep were judged by Mr Wally Jenkin, Nayook South, South Australia. He was accompanied by long time advisor Veronica, who judged the overall performance of the students from Badgally, Eskbank and Trinity on judging day. An interesting twist took place when our State President Tony Manchester invited our two judges to morning tea and supplied a police escort from the ring (perhaps it was by chance but it impressed our visitors). But there can be no doubt that the contest was very close and the competition very keen with the students holding all the sheep. For the second time this year a judge has remarked on how impressed he was with the schools’contribution.

As the results show, the success was widely spread this year. In the woolly classes the Billigaboo ram became grand champion and went on to be the supreme Corriedale, while Roseville had the shorn champion ram and the reserve champion woolly. In the ewe section, Badgally took out champion woolly ewe and Roseville the reserve champion woolly ewe. Yullundry won the champion shorn ewe from Rose-Lea, whose ewe got reserve. The grand champion ewe went to Badgally.

In the specials, a group of three, Tymec; a group of two ewes, Badgally; and best head Tymec.

The overall most successful exhibitor was Tymec.  A quick look through the results shows all the studs had successes in the various classes.

In the evening the Branch Social Director, Henry Thompson, had organised a fine venue for our annual dinner and presentation night. Our three trophy donors, John Armstrong, Alex and Jo Carroll and Bill Carroll were at the dinner to present them. The dinner was a huge success.

The following day the Tymec  team of milk tooth ram and two milk tooth ewes went into the interbreed competition  along with the Badgally ewe and the Billigaboo ram.  They all presented well. On Saturday the annual state meeting took place with the same executive being re-elected and being congratulated for all the work they have done this year. Plans were discussed for the celebration of 100 years of Corriedales being exhibited under the RAS banner and a review of our 100 years of Wool and War that took place this year which had such wonderful support from the AWI and the RAS.
