Todd and Mick Quinlivan of Quintarra Farms Esperance have won the WAMMCO Member of the Month award for March.
The consignment of 123 first and second cross, July drop, SAMM lambs were slaughtered at WAMMCO Katanning on March 9, with 65 percent achieving the premium grades 22.1-28 kg, fat score 2 & 3.
The Quinlivans put their success down to SAMMS, Lambplan, and to finishing their lambs in a feedlot.
The Esperance consignment averaged 27.44 kg for $3.07 per kg with all of the 123 lambs being fat score 2 or 3 .
The Producer of the Month awards are judged on the same judging grid used by WAMMCO for the State Lamb Competition.
