We got home from Burrawang West Station about 9:30pm, after a long day with the Senior Dorper Course exam. We had a range of tests to complete - in the morning we did the written exam, which we all passed. Then the pointing of 10 rams and 10 ewes, followed by the placing of 5 rams and 5 ewes in order of their quality,( much as you would at a show, we don't know if we passed that part). Then finally we were all individually tested with placing 5 ewes and 5 rams and justifying their placings to the Teacher (we all passed that part). There was a lot of tension and pacing about prior to the individual testing. The course is so worthwhile for the sheep farmer (regardless of breed), we learnt so much that can be applied at home, both from Wicus Cronje the teacher, and from the other participants. The opportunity to have a drink together and to sit down to a meal together, adds much to the fun and learning experience at Burrawang. Highly recommended.
