A WHITE Suffolk ram that last year won its ram lamb class at the Perth Royal Show, as well as being judged champion in its class at Wagin this year, continued the winning streak when it was named champion ram at the 1999 Perth Royal Show. The owners of the champion ram, Greg and Chris Harris, Clifton Downs stud, Scadden, said the ram had also been judged champion at this year's Wagin Woolorama. Mr Harris, who brought eight sheep to this year's Show and who first started exhibiting to "keep the breed going", said competition at the show was now getting tougher each year. Another of his rams won the champion title last year. Mr Harris, who mates 600 ewes and sells between 150-200 rams each year. Judge Perry Jasper, Cunderdin, said the champion ram was of great scale with good fleshing. "He was very correct and a well balanced sheep, just what the industry requires," he said. Michael Richardson, Arizona stud, Mt Barker, said he was happy with his ram, which was entered in the same class as the champion, being judged reserve champion. Jocklor stud, Pingelly, showing for the first time, had success with the stud's ewes, which won champion and reserve champion. Mr Jasper described the 16-month-old champion ewe as "outstanding, well fleshed and extremely correct". Jocklor stud principal Les Page said they had been breeding for six years, using only the best genetics, and had waited until they they had good sheep before exhibiting, in order to put the stud at the "forefront" of the industry.
