Prime Lambs

SECTION INFORMATION AND PROMOTION

NAME OF SECTION: Prime Lambs

NAME: Terry Mitchell

ENTRIES NUMBERS: 500 head.

The Prime Lamb section is a section that produces high quality livestock pitted up against each other in competition. Dubbo Show provides a hoof and hook Prime Lamb competition in which we host in conjunction with Fletcher International Exports.

Lambs arrive in pens of 5 and are weighed and tagged with 2 of the 5 randomly selected to be taken out of the pen and sent for slaughter for the hook side of the competition. The remaining 3 are judged as a pen of 3 on the hoof.

Numerous testing ie fat score are done on the lambs that were sent for slaughter and results tallied in conjunction with the hoof result to find the winners of each weight category.

With only 2 committee members on the Prime Lamb section we are always in need of a helping hand. It is a nice little section tucked away over beside the pavilions in the AJ Morris shed. Anyone that would like to help out would be more than welcome and would enjoy the experience.
