The 2014/15 WAMMCO State Prime Lamb Carcase Competition is up and running and will remain open for lambs processed at Katanning until Friday 29th May 2015.
This year we have introduced a new category – New Season Lamb. This is defined as a 2014 born, crossbred unshorn lamb that is processed by 12th December 2014. The competition continues its reputation as the largest and richest commercial carcase competition in Australia.
Over the past 11 years over 210,000 lambs have been evaluated and over $145,000 worth of cash and donated product have been distributed to the winning entrants.
Entry forms can be downloaded here. They are also regularly printed in the Farm Weekly or are available from members of the WAMMCO Livestock team.
The 2014/15 WAMMCO State Prime Lamb Carcase Competition is supported by Farm Weekly, Primaries, Elders, Superior Livestock Services, NAB Agribusiness, Gallagher Animal Management, Zoetis, Milne Feeds and WAMMCO.
