“He is an outstanding ram with plenty of muscle, a great top line and great depth,” Mr Routley said.
“We went there to buy him and we all thought he was very good value. We firmly through he was the pick of the draft there. I saw him at Hamilton Sheepvention (where he was champion ram) and he did very well at the Adelaide Show.”
All three owners are looking forward to how he is going to breed.
“I picked him up (Tuesday) night,” Mr Routley said. “We’ll certainly offer semen out of him, we have high expectations.”
