Supreme Poll Dorset exhibit (and supreme sheep of the show) Tattykeel Immortal, a ram exhibited by Tattykeel studs, Oberon, and held by James Gilmore, and sashed by judge James Corcoran, Gooramma stud, Boorowa.

TATTYKEEL Immortal once again lived up to his name at the Landmark NSW State Sheep Show, Dubbo, at the weekend.

The 13-month-old was first sashed champion and supreme Poll Dorset ram in breed judging, before going on to win supreme sheep of the show.

And for the second year running, exhibitors Tattykeel stud, Oberon, took home every broad ribbon in the Poll Dorset ring.

Judge James Corcoran, Gooramma stud, Boorowa, said Immortal had the doing ability and muscling needed to come out on top.

"He's a good Poll Dorset type with modern attributes that the breed requires, including plenty of size without being extreme, a well-developed hind quarter and a well-balanced ram as well," he said.

Immortal was the champion ram lamb at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show, Bendigo, as a six-month-old last year, and will have lambs on the ground in spring of this year.

Exhibitor James Gilmore said the champion ram weighed 145 kilograms with lambs teeth.

"You don't often see a ram of the weight and size that still has lambs teeth - that's why we call him Immortal," Mr Gilmore said.

Tattykeel's reserve champion ram was also an April-drop sire with his lambs teeth, this time weighing 128kg, and was by Tatttykeel Banjo, last year's supreme prime lamb sire of the Sydney Royal.
