Nominations for WAMMCO’s $15,000 State Lamb Carcase Competition have already nudged ahead of entry numbers for this time last year, and convenor Rob Davidson is hoping for a bumper contest.
With 2009 also expected to see the introduction by WAMMCO of VIAscan premiums of $3-$4 per lamb as an incentive for high-yielding lambs, and a good season in most regions, producers have been lining up early to enter their lambs.
Lambs delivered to WAMMCO Katanning up until Thursday, February 26, 2009 may be nominated for the contest. Consignments must be a minimum of 100 lambs and a $50 entry fee will apply.
Joining WAMMCO as sponsors of more than $15,000 in cash and prizes for the competition are Milne Feeds, Primaries of WA, Superior Livestock Services, Elders, Ballard Seeds, Bayer and Farm Weekly.
Entry Forms appear in Farm Weekly and may be faxed to 9355 0961.
Competition inquiries should be directed to Rob Davidson on 0429 380 195, and bookings may be made through Fiona Clay or Rose Armstrong at WAMMCO Katanning on 9821 2000.
