MAKING the trip to South Australia with a team of sheep has paid dividends for a Walla Walla stud.
John and Julie Wiesner of the Glengarry White Suffolk Stud exhibited the winning ram under 18 months in a strong line-up of 32 entries.
The win has set the tone for the stud which is now preparing for the Henty Machinery Field Days.
They will team up with fellow producers to exhibit at the event.
Mrs Wiesner said the display would have a commercial focus.
“When we first started going to Henty over 20 years ago, producers were either into Merinos or first-cross ewes but now prime lambs have become an important cash flow generator in mixed enterprises,’’ Mrs Wiesner said.
