What a week! We have only just hit the ground after an outstanding ram sale on Tuesday, which far exceeded our every expectation.
Our sincere thanks to the more than 100 stud and commercial buyers from NSW, Vic, SA and Tas (or their representatives) who registered for the sale and showed such confidence in Cloven Hills genetics and the future of our industry.
In summary, we had an additional 32% more rams on offer than 2019, our top-price for the day exceeded last year’s by more than 70% and our average for the day increased by more than 20% – results we are extremely grateful for and proud of.
We could not be more pleased with the outcome of the sale and extend thanks to our agent, Rick Smith, along with Greg Bright and the teams at Nutrien Ag Solutions Casterton, Auctions Plus and Cloven Hills, for helping us bring the sale together. It was a sterling effort from Josh McDonald, who auctioneered for nearly 4 hours!
We are excited to announce we will be holding Summer Sales in February 2021 at Cloven Hills & Wesley Dale Tasmania, with 2020 drop ram lambs on offer. We see this as a great opportunity to plan ahead and access the next generation of Cloven Hills genetics. More details to follow shortly.
In the meantime, we have some high-quality rams available for Private Sale if you are needing to top up your ram teams before then.
Thanks again for your wonderful support.
Kate and Chris Dorahy
