Bill Walker comments on the Ridgway Advance Classic Sale 2011 - read 'Classings Cullings '12 edition for the full report"
"Typically Ridgway Advance - Bordertown SA entered another large, top quality team due to huge initial ram lamb numbers dropped, allowing them to narrow down their On Property, Adelaide and Classic Sale teams to only top quality animals
Ridgway Advance's first Horn Ram - best horn ram in the sale and over 96 rams on offer he was definitely in my top three overall"
