At the 2017 Sydney Royal Easter Show Shalimar Park won the grand champion superfine ewe, champion March-shorn superfine ewe and five other broad ribbons including grand champion ultrafine poll ewe and reserve grand champion ultrafine ram.
2016 Sydney Royal Easter Show - grand champion fleece.
2015 Sydney Royal Easter Show - 10 broad ribbons.
In 2012, Shalimar Park Merino Stud won the Stanthorpe Weather Trial. The stud was the overall winner over the four year trial, meanwhile in the same year, the van Eyk family won the supreme exhibit at the Sydney Royal Easter Show with a superfine ram.
Shalimar Park Merinos have great size, cut, style, softness and constitution. This is proven by the stud's success at shows and wether trials.
At Shalimar the stud has a long-standing clientele. Our two longest standing ram buyers both bought the equal top price rams at the 2015 annual on-property ram sale.
Frank Presnell, "Frama" Guyra, has continuously bought rams from Shalimar for more than 50 years, while Bob and Brett Cummins from Deepwater have been buying rams for more than 30 years.
Frank also bought the top-priced ram again in 2017.
Shalimar Park has also sold a number of rams to leading merino studs in every state of Australia.
The Shalimar Park Merinos annual commercial surplus sheep sale usually tops the local sales.
