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 will be held on Thursday 12th September. Sixty hogget rams by leading sires will be offered at the sale, which will be held under shelter at 'Elon' 343 Barker's Rd Greenethorpe. On the day, inspections are welcome from 10am. The sale, to be conducted by Elders, will commence at 1pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

With in-depth knowledge of the sires and sale rams, Ralph is able to help customise your ram selections to meet your breeding objectives. Why not give him a call to discuss how Rocklyn can help advance your flock?

In 2018, fourty-five merino and poll merino hogget rams were sold at the sale for an average of $1,162. Long-term clients, McKellar Pastoral Co. from Grenfell purchased the top-priced ram for $2,300. The ram was sired by Poll Boonoke 1500026 (Champion March shorn Australian Merino all-purpose ram at the 2016 Bendigo Sheep and Wool show) and with figures of FD 17.6, YCFW 29, YFD -1.1, YSL 9.5, YWT 5.4, DP+ 159, MP+ 164 he was terrific value for money.
