Many thanks to all clients and bidders attending our On Property Auction on September 17th. Auctioneer Leo Redden from Nutrien Ag Solutions ran a lively sale resulting the top price of $3,200 being reached twice, and an overall average of $1585 for the 79 rams sold.
Indicative of the depth of choice in the lineup, it took until lots 62 and 85 for the equal top prices to be reached.
Darren O'Brien chose a son of the Glen Holme sire 162503 who is performing extremely well in the 2019 Balmoral Sire Evaluation. His progeny have shown very high growth whilst retaining the same wool cut as the average of his merino counterparts and being lower in both fibre diameter and coefficient of variation in fibre diameter. Lot 62 has a Dohne + Index of 175.9, a PEMD of 1.56, YCFW of 18.5 which are all top 10% trait leaders and a YSL of 4.98 which is in the top 20%.
D & J Rich in Victoria, acting through family in SA, purchased lot 85, with a Dohne + Index of 175.2, with a PEMD of 1.7, both being trait leaders.
Volume buyers the Hawthorne family took home 11 carefully chosen rams that fit the vision for their business.
The Sherriff family secured 8 rams to continue their Dohne journey.
Kernchen and Co who have come with us and our Dohnes from early on purchased 7.
Mardango Props were also successful with 7.
Of the107 commercial ewe hoggets that made $250, more than half were born as twins or triplets. These went to the Rich family.
We were able to provide prospective clients with ASBV's for EBCOV, LDAG, PSC and YSL. These are beyond the mandatory Dohne requirements.
Thanks to everyone for respecting Covid guidelines and requirements.
Sometimes our weather is somewhat challenging for the marquee, on numerous occasions we have rounded up some heavy duty 'tractor' weights to help hold things in place.
