Thanks to our generous supporters:






Producer of the Year Award

Key points of the new award:

  • There is no entry fee or entry forms to complete and it is open to both Crossbred and Merino lamb suppliers
  • Growers must supply a minimum of 250 crossbred or 250 Merino lambs to gain automatic entry
  • Winners will be determined by the highest percentage of carcases meeting WAMMCO’s carcase sweet spot (18.1-28kg, fat scores 2-3), compared with the consignment totals.

The annual award will have five separate categories (3 for Crossbred and 2 for Merino lambs) based on total annual throughput — to ensure an equitable competition for smaller and larger producers. 

POY category winners will be determined by a score calculation determined by each growers' entire financial year lamb throughput, with

  • an 80% weighting on the number of carcases meeting WAMMCO’s carcase sweet spot (18.1-28kg, fat scores 2-3)
  • a 20% weighting to the timing and quantity of lambs delivered. Higher points will be awarded to members that deliver large number of lambs outside the Spring flush


The 2017/18 WAMMCO Producer of the Year winners were announced on 31 October 2018 and the overall winners were Tom & Donna Lynch, Hyden.
