The ram had earlier been named senior champion.

The reserve grand champion was a young ram owned by Michelle Bergh, of Bethal in Mpumalanga. The young animal was also the junior champion on show.

The reserve to the senior champion was a ram owned by E.L. van Rooyen, of the Elze Stoet in Cloco­lan in the Free State, and the reserve junior champion ram was owned by Henk Moller of Uitblink Stoet in Amersfoort in Mpumalanga.

Moller enjoyed more success in the ewe categories. He was the owner of the grand champion ewe, an animal that had earlier in the day been named senior champion

He also won the prizes for junior champion ewe and reserve junior champion.
