Ram Sales

Rams are sold through an on-property ram sale in early Spring followed by private, on-farm ram sales of surplus rams. 

The 2021 on-property ram sale was held on Thursday 9th September, at 'Elon' 343 Barkers Rd Greenethorpe. 

Seventy July/August 2020 Drop Merino Rams were offered in the sale, which attracted 22 registered buyers. This included 6 new buyers as well as some dedicated return buyers, which set the scene for some competitive bidding resulting in a full clearance at an average price of $3,225.

The sale was conducted by Elders Young with Aaron Seaman doing the auctioneering.  This year, the poll rams were sired by Bundilla, Centre Plus, Anderson, Poll Boonoke, Wallaloo Park, Ridgway Advance, and Rocklyn sires. The horned rams were sired by Rocklyn rams. A sample of the rams sold at this year's sale is provided below. 

The top price ram sold for $6,000 to Trevor Knight, bidding on behalf of HB & VJ Knight and Son from Grenfell. The ram, which was lot 10 in the sale was sired by one of Rocklyn’s own, Rocklyn Poll 180215, has excellent dual-purpose qualities and is a trait leader (top 5 %) for YCFW. With figures such as FD 17.9, SD 2.8, CF 99.7 and ASBVs of 33 for YCFW, 9.1 YWT and -0.63 EBWR and a DP+ index of 177, the Knights certainly chose well.

Additional, graded 2020 Drop Merino and Poll Merino rams will be available through private, on-farm sales from Monday 20th September. Please contact Ralph for more information about the rams that are available for purchase.
