Cameron Little, “Oakburn”, Walcha with Chain-O-Ponds Border Leicester stud principals Margaret and Bruce Davidson with the top priced ram.VOLUME buyers from the local area and surrounding districts sent the 39th Annual Walcha Show Society’s Border Leicester, Poll Dorset and White Suffolk sale to a top of $2200.
The five vendor sale sold 186 rams out of 193, with the Border Leicester rams averaging $1189 and topping at $2200, the Poll Dorset rams making a top of $1300 and averaging $872 and the White Suffolk rams averaging $1120 and topping at $1400.
The top priced ram was sold by Chain-O-Ponds Border Leicester stud, Walcha and was purchased by Cameron Little, “Oakburn”, Walcha.
The repeat buyer breeds commercial rams to sell locally and said he purchased the Chain-O-Ponds ram for it’s good length and frame.
“It will help breed bigger ewes and build the frame of the sheep better,” he said.
Chain-O-Ponds stud principal, Bruce Davidson, said the sale result was extremely positive for all involved.
“There was good repeat buyers and there were at least four out of town volume buyers,” he said.
Since September, the Walcha region has had a pretty good season and Mr Davidson said the rams have reflected the turn around.
“Since they’ve got their feed, they’ve hit their straps,” he said.
