SUMMIT Park at Hamilton has enjoyed a good 2015 show season, winning ribbons at three regional shows not only for its Texels but also for its White Suffolks.
At the Coleraine Show, Summit Park won the Champion Texel Ewe ribbon with a 12 week old ewe lamb and the Champion Texel Ram with a 14 month old ram. In the first showing of their White Suffolks, a 12 week old ram lamb was placed on top in a line-up of six young ram lambs.
At the Casterton Show, Summit Park won the Supreme Champion Ewe ribbon with its 14 month old Texel ewe, as well as Champion Texel Ram.
At the Noorat Show, Summit Park won the Supreme Champion Ewe title with its 14 month old Texel ewe, as well as Champion Texel Ram with a 14 month old ram. Its White Suffolk ram lamb was also Champion of its breed.
Judges commended Summit Park on the consistency of the sheep it presented. Summit Park said its second successful embryo transfer program, using its top performance ewes and rams, played a big part in producing the evenness.
