Champion Corriedale ram shown by Katrina Abbott

Young breeder and a boys school shared the honours in the Corriedale section

Grand and reserve grand champion rams - judge Jack Finch, SBBL Sydney, Katrina Abbott, Boolina, Wambool and Brandon Douglas, parading the shorn ram entered by Tony Manchester, Roseville, Kingsvale.

There were 42 Corriedales paraded before judge Jack Finch during the 2022 Sydney Royal Meat and Dual Purpose breed sheep show held in the Cox Pavilion.

Mr Finch, a wool auctioneer with Schute Bell Badgery Lumby in Sydney was very impressed with the high standard of the sheep in the various classes.

"It was quite a strong competition across the board in regard to trueness of type," he said.

"It was very even and especially among the young sheep which show great potential for the breed."

Ribbons were shared fairly evenly among the competitors.
