The season has been tremendous so far this year, as has been the case for much of the South West Land Division. The excess feed has given us an opportunity to expand our sheep numbers. We have bought in 720 wether hoggets to sell in the shipping market & 1350 ewe hoggets most of which are to be sold off shears in September. The sheep prices are returning to 2010 levels with Eastern States buyers gathering interest and the wool prices are at 10 year highs. I can say with confidence that the rams to be sold at this year’s sale are of the best standard we have bred so far. The test results and the visual aspects of the sheep are of a high standard. The wool cut & carcass traits have noticeably improved from previous years.
Happy Breeding, from Peter Wilkinson.
