New Zealand judge, Kim Ridgen, Christchurch, said she sashed the ram, from the over one and a half years old class, from Mount Monmot Perendales, Mount Emu, over the younger ewe.

The August, 2015 drop ram, recorded figures of 137.5kilograms, nine millimetres of fat, a muscle depth of 4.8mm, width of 104mm and an eye muscle area of 38.4square centimetres.

“They are a dual purpose breed and the ram is a very good example of that,” Ms Ridgen said.

“He’s good structurally, he’s got a good, fine, even fleece, he walks well and he has got a great meat content as well

“It’s very hard to chose, but he’s an older ram over against a ewe hogget.

“He’s proven, she’s unproven. She’s still got a long way to go, she’s going to grow into a lovely ewe, but the ram was the better animal, on the day.”
