There were eight Merino producers who put their sheep on display for the ANZ Agribusiness Gunning Flock Ewe Competition on Friday.
The day began under cloudy skies but after shivering through the first few on-farm visits the sun came out, showing off some of the green pick coming up from the good rain the district has received in recent weeks.
The top five entrants were announced on Friday evening and included Belinda Minehan, Wyuna, Bernie Byrnes, Fairview, Scott Medway, Mount Pleasant, Campbell Basnett, Woodbine and Matt Hewitt, Allamby.
The winners of the Flock Ewe Competition will be revealed this weekend at the Gunning Show.
Judges, Alex Wilson and Guy Evans commended all the producers for the impressive presentation of their sheep given the tough season.
