Angenup has done it again, winning its 14th Rabobank group of fives award title as well as the exhibitor with most points.

The winning group of five were sired by Angenup Franklin, a supreme champion at Wagin, Williams and Katanning in 2009.

Adding to Angenup’s success was a sash for the Landmark Pro Ram competition.

Judge Simon Williamson said the winning ram was 144.5kg compared to second place’s 124kg.

“What took Angenup over the line was the results on the fleece, out of wool, the flanks and top line showed a supreme animal, ” he said.

The Pro Ewe was awarded for the first time to Rangeview and Mr Williamson said the ewe had a beautiful white fleece, with nice coverage, top line and was very impressive.

Willemenup was sashed the grand champion for the pairs with its entry of two August-shorn Poll Merino rams.

Judge Daniel Gooding said the pair was fault free, carrying beautiful classy wool that the industry was crying out for.

In the Elders Field Day Fours, Kolindale came first followed by Quailerup West for the Merinos and Anglesey was first with Hyfield in reserve for the Polls.

Judge Tom Ashby said it was a fantastic class which involved travelling around the green countryside as they inspected each of the stud entries.
