Stud principal Shane Baker said it was the junior ram’s first big win.

“To me, he stood out because of his presence, he’s got plenty of bone about him,” Mr Baker said.

“We were blown away, we weren’t expecting to go this well, so it was a great surprise.”

Judge Nick Lawrence, Pinnacle White Suffolk stud, Bordertown, SA, said the winning ram was a good representation of the breed.

“To me, this ram’s got the right White Suffolk characteristics that we’re after, he’s got the black eye, he’s got muscling all the way through, and black feet to go along with it,” Mr Lawrence said.

“On the day, with everything taken into consideration, he was the winner by far.”

He did say that there was a good offering of White Suffolks.

“There were plenty of White Suffolks here that could have taken out the gong, but this one just really stood out.”
