Woodpark Poll Merino

Best pen of three rams Loddon Valley Field Day

The ability to withstand weather extremes and still demonstrate quality helped bring home the best pen of three rams award for Woodpark Poll at Loddon Valley Field Day last Friday.

The ram award was backed up by the stud’s young ewes being awarded runner up in the Loddon Valley’s best of pen three ewe weaners memorial competition.

Judges Murray McKenzie and Phil Toland were looking for consistency and sheep with the least faults.

And they noted that despite the surplus of rainfall this year our sheep had clearly withstood any damage and fared well in unusual conditions.

Our focus of the day and always was to highlight the durability of Woodpark Poll sheep.

Like many we were affected by the floods and after 300mm of rain in five and a half weeks and certainly more unrecorded, Woodpark poll sheep have proven once again that they will persevere with white, soft 18-micron wool estimated to cut 8kgs.

With thanks to the judges choosing our Best pen of Three Rams as winner and coming in as runner up for Doug Todd Memorial Pen of Three ewe weaners.

With big meaty dual-purpose frames our sheep have a tick in every box, with fleece volume and value, white wools, soft microns.

We took a selection of bare-breeched ewes to demonstrate high fleece weight quality wools with a handprint of bareness around tails that manages to avoid any plainness.

We always love coming down to Loddon Valley Stud Merino Field Day with 19 other studs. It’s a central point to our clients as we send sheep south, east, southeast, west and north from this point.

After another successful year we hope to see you next year.
