2017 Sydney Royal Easter Show

74 Corriedales were featured at this year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show and Charlie Prell had the task of judging them. There was no easing Charlie into the day as there was a big line-up of woolly rams under 12 months old in the first class. The big prize of the day, the Peter Taylor memorial group, went to Tymec from Laggan.

On day 2 it was time to judge the older sheep, with a Glen Esk ram from the over 2 years class winning grand champion ram, and Billigaboo taking out reserve champion ram. In the ewe classes Badgally won both grand champion and reserve champion ewe. Eskbank won the best sire’s fleece of the show. Charlie commented onhow the quality of sheep across the board has improved since he last judged at Sydney.

Overall Sydney was a success for Corriedales and all breeders agreed that it is worth a trip. There was also an auction for the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS), where a blanket made from Corriedale wool spun by the Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild of NSW at last year’s show sold for $1050. This was a great result for the RAS foundation as they do some excellent work.
