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 2020 on-property ram sale will be held on Thursday 10th September. Seventy merino and poll merino rams will be offered at the sale, which will be conducted by Elders.

For the first time, the on-property ram sale will also be live-streamed on StockLive. Buyers who prefer to bid online will need to register with StockLive prior to the sale. Data, photos and a video of all seventy sale rams are available on the StockLive website.
