James Lines rules in national goat ring

Written on the 14 September 2015

Amid rapturous applause from a highly supportive home crowd, James Lines was declared the country's best young Angora goat judge.

James, a Year 10 student at Scotch College Adelaide, was commended by judge Jude Eustice, Hahndorf, on his appearance and delivery.

"He was very professional in his delivery and he dressed appropriately," Ms Eustice said. "That set him up to feel confident and it showed.

"He knew what he liked about the animals and fleeces, and he was very concise and informed with his judging.

"He was outstanding, he used all the right words and terminology, which some of the others didn't.

"I wouldn't hesitate to have him judge at a local show."

The final was contested by two participants each from SA, NSW and Vic, with University of New England Rural Science student Caitlin Bowman, Armidale, NSW, finishing third.

James, 15, said he was thrilled to receive tremendous support from his former Burra Community School classmates, as well as key figures in the local industry.

"In the ring I'm looking at the carcase traits, looking for good conformation and with the mohair, it's all about quality more-so than weight," he said.
