    WANGANELLA 160801 – NSW BEST IN STATE RIVERINA WOOL AUSTRALIA HOGGET RAM COMPETITION


    FD 21.2 SD 3.1 CV 14.6 CF 99.4

    His great grand sire was a National March Shorn Ram at Dubbo. His grand sire was an Elders Riverina Ram of the Year. His sire was the Champion Strong Wool March Shorn Ram at Dubbo.
    Now Wanganella 160801 has led the way for our 2016 drop March Shorn Shedded Rams at their first comparative opportunity for 2017 by winning the Riverina Wool NSW Hogget Ram title at the Hay Sheep Show. W160801 weighed 103.5 kg going into the competition, which had 36 entries in the line up for the Riverina Wool Australia Hogget Ram with 19 being NSW Stud rams, and in the MerinoSelect 22 June 2017 analysis he was a trait leader for YCFW, ranked in the top 1% at 30.9, and the DP Plus and MP Plus Indexes.

    The win by W1608010 replicates the NSW Hogget Ram title that PB150026 won last year with PB140948 and PB130037 winning the Riverina Wool Australia Hogget Ram title in the prior two years.
