THE Veitch family's Kaya Dorper and White Dorper stud, Narrogin, featured on the national stage at its debut showing at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo, Victoria, last week.
The stud sent a team of Dorper and White Dorper rams to the show with the WA contingent of Merino rams for the long journey east.
Kaya was awarded two broad ribbons and sold rams at the sale including the $3600 second top price.
It was a great result for the WA stud given the Kaya rams lost from nine to 11 kilograms of bodyweight during the trip.
The Kaya stud picked up a few third and fourth place ribbons during the class judging, before a Kaya ram was awarded the reserve senior champion ram of the show.
The ram finished in second place in its class over 1.5-years-old, to the eventual grand champion ram and supreme Dorper exhibit of the show from the van Neikerk family's Dell Dorpers, Moama, New South Wales, who dominated the broad ribbon awards for the breed.
