Unknown. NOUN RINGER (_plural_ RINGERS) * (UK, dialect) A top performer. * (Australia) The champion shearer of a shearing shed. * (Australia) A stockman, a cowboy. * 1964, Alec Bolton, _Walkabout′s Australia_, Walkabout magazine, page 107, The RINGERS are the stockmen on a station. The cattle pass through their hands before the drovers lift them and take them along the stock routes that lead to the killing pens in cities. * 1987, Geoffrey Atkinson, Philip Quirk. _The Australian Adventure: The Explorer′s Guide to the Island Continent_, page 175, This vast holding is run by six RINGERS and six boys. A RINGER is a qualified stationhand and a boy is a trainee. It takes four years for a boy to become a RINGER. * 2005, Jake Drake, _The Wild West in Australia and America_, page 156, Most people associated with the Australian beef industry believe the RINGER′S skill of throwing cattle by the tail to be a practice that is purely Australian. There is ample evidence however, that it was practised in South and Central America long before it was developed here.
