Hannaton On Property Ram Sale

2012 On Property Ram Sale

Large crowd buys record numbers at Hannaton

Buyers from three states pushed Hannaton on-property Merino & Poll Merino sale to new heights. 97 of the 103 rams on offer averaged $1,641. A large crowd bid enthusiastically on 58 Poll Merino rams which sold to a top of $3,800 and 39 Merino rams which sold to a top of $3,400.

Buyers travelled from Mundulla, Frances, Coomandook, Naracoorte and Lucindale in South Australia; Boorowa in NSW, and many parts of Victoria, including Stawell, Harrow, Kaniva, Nhill, Horsham, Orford and Rainbow. Jonno Hicks was very pleased with the number of return buyers and new purchasers at the sale “it’s great to see the confidence being shown in our rams to keep our clients coming back. The growing interest in our sheep, especially in our Poll Merinos, is very exciting”.

The top priced ram was a poll merino, lot number 2, and went to return buyer Loyoak, Minimay, who had previously bought 2 at $4,000 each at Hamilton Sheepvention. This productive ram was sired by Leahcim 080563 and is a true dual purpose ram. With a large square frame and a stylish long stapled wool testing 19.0 microns, standard deviation of 3.6, comfort factor of 99.7% and an above average greasy fleece weight he was a popular choice for many bidders.  

Another repeat buyer,Graeme Craig, Frances, bought 3 to $3,400. Tony & Gerard Nolan, Harrow, bought 4 to $2,800. The volume buyer was Westella Farms, Netherby, who bought 10 rams averaging $1,160.
