Rams, ewes and Merinos were the talk of the town over the weekend.

Hundreds of entries clopped their way into the Bendigo showgrounds as their owners hoped for a good result.

Border Leicester breed from Retallack Stud in NSW took out the awards for short-wool group any age and long-wool group any age.

The awards were presented by the Australian Stud Sheep Breeders Association.

Retallack stud owners Isabella and Graham Grinter are regular contenders at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo.

Mrs Grinter said she was very happy with the day's result. "We only have stud sheep as our income so this is really great for our business," she said.

Results from the other categories are as follows:

Supreme champion merino - Grathlyn Stud in Mudgee, New South Wales.

Grand champion merino ram - Grathlyn Stud in Mudgee, New South Wales.

Grand champion ewe - Rockbank Stud in Victoria Valley, Victoria.

Supreme long wool interbreed champion - Corriedale Stud in Quamby Plain, Tasmania.
