2.5yo ewes sell to $302 at Kojonup
"The rams again displayed the carcase traits the stud is renowned for, while the wools were also very good."
Unlike last year when more than half of the yarding headed across the border to the Eastern States, this year it was local WA buyers, who were looking for replacement ewes or an extra mob to mate, that dominated the buying list securing all but four lines.
Lamb prices have been at record levels again over the past 12 months on the back of global demand for quality sheepmeat outstripping supply and they are expected to remain high into the future.
With the wool market in a more positive position compared to last year, along with feed and water in the paddocks, producers were more confident in their bidding.
Right through the season stud breeders achieved new benchmarks for their studs whether it be a top price value or a record average as buyers went to never before seen levels at ram sales in WA.
Determined to purchase some quality White Suffolk rams, bidders and onlookers were all rugged up to endure the cooler weather.
The sale was red hot from start to finish on the back of strong support from local and Eastern States' buyers and this resulted in records tumbling.
