2015 Challara Ram Sale review, courtesy Farm Weekly

126 Poll Merino ram offered

  • 124 sold
  • Average Price of $1304
  • Top Price of $3800

31 Merino rams offered

  • 25 sold
  • Average price of $1024
  • Top price of $2400

Two more rams sold immediately after the sale privately.

Even though the average was down over $300 from last year’s outstanding result, there were plenty of positives to come out of it. The top end of the sale sold very well, there were plenty of affordable rams and  close to a full clearance. Buyers are coming from a number of different farming areas including Northampton, Morawa, Boyup Brook, Mukinbudin, Southern Cross and Wagin. My final positive thought about the sale is that the volume ram buyers this year were all return clients, who understand what our stud is trying to achieve through the SRS breeding system. We are also excited about the improvements coming through in the next generation of our Merino sheep.
