A NSW ram and Queensland ewe shared the supreme spotlight at the Dorper and White Dorper National Show and Sale at Dubbo.

Andrea van Niekerk, Dumisa, Moama, exhibited the supreme White Dorper ram, Dumisa 120441, after it won the four tooth and over, senior and grand champion ram classes.

Dumisa 120441 was a rising two-year-old sire by African G041, a son of impact sire African D555.

Judge Webber Scheun, Beaufort West, South Africa, said the ram was a nice long, strong, meaty ram.

Queensland stud Bellevue, Millmerran, took out the Dorper judging winning supreme exhibit with their senior and grand champion ewe.

The 2011-drop was an embryo transfer ewe by Phillip Strauss “Magnum”.

Exhibitor Sophie Curtis said the ewe had a lot of capacity and a feminine head.

Junior champion Dorper ram, exhibited by Global stud, Narrabri, was sashed grand champion Dorper ram over the senior champion Dorper ram from the Kaya stud, Orange.
