Around the World...



At the Comodoro Rivadavia Sheep Show in Argentina February 2012, the Gonzalo family from the Rio Pico Stud exhibited the Supreme Merino Sheep of the show. Their winning ram was sired by a Langdene Sire they purchased at Bendigo in 2007. The Comodoro Rivadavia is regarded as Argentina's leading sheep show, winning the Supreme is therefore highly prestigious and regarded as a huge honour.

February proved to be a very successful month for Langdene clients. At the 13th annual Tablelands Flock Ewe Competition there were 12 flocks entered for the judges', Alan Dawson of Winyar Stud, Canowindra and Danny Picker of Hillcreston Park Stud, Bigga. Coming out with first place was long term Langdene clients the Inder family of Wattle Grove Partnership, Dunedoo. The judges commented on these winning ewes as being large framed, highly productive and extremely even in wool type and size.
