REGULAR buyers returned to Hilltop Park last week to invest in Geoff and Karen Scanlon's quality woolled rams which sold to a top of $750 twice. The rams averaged $492, down only $38 on last year, and recorded the same top as last year, reflecting the consistency of the stud's rams and regular clientele. Elders auctioneer Andrew Stephens said the rams with the finer microns which maintained size created the most interest, indicating the way the industry was heading. Geoff entered a team of finer micron rams averaging 19.1 micron, 99 percent comfort factor and a spinning fineness of 18.5 micron. First to pay the top price of $750 was last year's top price buyer Graydon Wilcox, Woodanilling, trading under Miripin Farms. Mr Wilcox bought the ram as a team of 15 including rams for $725, $700 and $675 averaging out to $447. Also getting their name on the books as top price buyer was Alan and Kim Bunce, Darkan, who bought another $750 ram soon after Miripin Farms. The Bunces were also bulk buyers investing in 13 rams for an average of $485, including two rams for $700, three rams in the $600 range and one ram for $725. Regular clients JF & EA Lloyd, Darkan, were very active early on in the sale, buying all four of their rams in consecutive pens for $675 and $600 (3), averaging the highest of the buyers at $594. WP Walker and Sons also returned to Hilltop Park to buy three rams for $500 and $300 (2). ÿ
