George Willow (Year 5) has competed in the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo and been awarded reserve championship for his two-year-old ram.
It was his first time as an exhibitor at the premier sheep show. As an added bonus, a Victorian breeder approached George after the judging had been completed and made an offer to purchase the reserve champion ram which he accepted.
George inherited the Evandale sheep stud from his maternal grandfather, Ian Campbell who had started the Nant stud in 1948 when he was 10 years old having been given a draft of ewes by his grandfather.
George runs a flock of 52 ewes and 13 rams and has already booked to compete again 2020 Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo next year.
A fantastic achievement!
