2017 Royal Canberra Show Report
Ed Thomas from Cooma judged the Corriedales at the Royal Canberra Show.
There was a really strong line-up of sheep to be judged, while the woolly ewe and ram lamb classes were the biggest and probably the hardest to place as all the ewes were of good quality.
Roseville was the big winner on the day with champion ram and supreme longwool exhibit, with Rose-Lea winning champion ewe and supreme longwool ewe. Both sheep had a great coverage of wool and plenty of carcase.
The reserve ram went to Badgally and the reserve ewe to TYMEC. The champion shorn sheep went to new member Trinity which was a great effort at their first show.
The group of three Corriedales Ed gave to a group of woolly lambs from Badgally. They were not the biggest group in the line-up but they were the most even.
Canberra is a good start to the show season for exhibitors to see how their sheep compete. This year for the Corriedales was an amazing show, beating both Border Leicesters for supreme longwool exhibit, which is a first at Canberra Show.
