THE Elders Corrigin-Kondinin ewe sale sizzled to a top of $94.50 recently, a rise of $45.50 on last year's top price result.
To give some idea of the demand for quality eastern Wheatbelt ewes, the cheapest line of ewes sold for $40.50 to WAMMCO, with most lines averaging around $70.
The excellent quality yardings saw buyers from Wannamal, to Ravensthorpe and west to Cranbrook attend the sale, hoping to purchase eastern Wheatbelt ewes.
There was good representation of prospective buyers from surrounding areas like Hyden, Karlgarin, Kulin and Pingelly, but it was the Elders Perth and Cranbrook team that bought the majority of the ewes.
The sale-topping line of 325 rising June-July 2008 born ewes was offered by HJ Wilkins & Sons, Kondinin.
Barry Wilkins ewes were January shorn and bred using his stud's Narbethong bloodlines, attracting plenty of attention for their big, stretchy frames and bright white wool.
