Woodpark Poll Merino

Best Pen of Three Rams at Loddon Valley . . . again

March 9, 2017

Stock and Land reported: “Huggins family wins best pen of rams” – March 9, 2017.

“Woodpark Poll stud, Eurolie, Hay, has won the best pen of three rams competition at Loddon Valley field day every second year since 2011 – and 2017 was no exception.

“All three rams’ pedigrees go back to Woodpark Poll 10 0015, which Carol Huggins said had a huge impact on the stud. Two (of the winning Pen of three) rams were sired by Woodpark Poll 12 0241 and one was sired by Woodpark Poll 12 0342.

“The three Poll Merino hoggets impressed the judges for their quality wool (lustrous, soft handling, with great lock density) and huge carcase attributes”.

“Mrs Huggins said they strove to breed sheep that combined those traits so could take advantage of both the wool market, now at record highs, and the growing global demand for protein.”

“Paul Hendy, Belbourie and John Barty, Beverley, were the judges and put Terrick West’s entry in second and Kedleston Park’s in third.”
