Rams Sales

RAM SALES 2018

Ram sales are held privately each year by arrangement.

This year we have a good selection of paddock reared rams that are August drop, May shorn and ready to work. They are a plain bodied, dual purpose ram that are mostly polled.

With the current wool and sheep procies where a typical property receives half of their income from wool and half from sheep sales, there is an obvious emphasis on wool cut and fertility. We believe that other selection criteria in the current environment have little influence on overall profitablity.

Recent research has shown how good fat and muscle scores will lift fertility and doing ability - all important features of the modern merino.

Our sale rams are by sires that did well on those scores and we have that data available.

During the last two years we have averaged 95 marking % for an August lambing.

This year only the 1.5 year old ewes were scanned and there was  no supervision of any of the ewes during lambing - if the ewes are well grown and well fed - there shouldn't be any problems

A NO OBLIGATION INSPECTION IS WELCOME AT ANY TIME
