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 2019 on-property ram sale was held on Thursday 12th September. Forty-five of the sixty merino and poll merino rams offered were sold, for an average price of $1,431. Aaron Seaman of Elders Rural Services, Young, conducted the auction which was held at ‘Elon’ Greenethorpe.

The top priced ram sold for $4,600 to returning buyer CC and SM Braid of Boorowa. The ram was certainly worth it – a poll sired by Roemahkita’s ‘RJ’ with a micron of 18.2, body weight of 90kg and trait leading ASBVs including YCFW 30, YSL 10.5, YWT 8.1, DP+ 168 and MP+ 172. To read more about the 2019 sale and previous ram sales, please click here

Below is a sample of the rams that were offered at the 2019 on-property ram sale. ASBV trait leaders (in top 30% or better) are marked with an asterisk. 

Graded 2018 drop surplus rams and those passed in at the sale are still available through private, on-farm sales. With in-depth knowledge of the rams, Ralph is able to help customise your ram selections to meet your breeding objectives.
