WHITE dorper ram Gippsland Boy has made his mark on the agricultural show circuit taking out the top prize in his section at the Wynyard Show.
It was the first time Gippsland Boy had been shown in Tasmania and the first time the ram’s new owner Paul Smith from Deep Creek White Dorpers had shown any animal.
Mr Smith said he was happy with the judge’s comments on the day and said he provided great feedback, both positive and negative.
“He [the judge] was very honest, he was telling everybody what the faults were with the animals and that’s the things you need to know, because then you can see how you’re going breeding-wise,” Mr Smith said.
Gippsland Boy was described as a “well put together ram” by the judge and Mr Smith said he believed he deserved the comments because of his characteristics.
