After bucking the trend last year and seeing a lift in average of $309, this year the Jackson family saw their average rise by $311.
With a total of 199 sheep penned and competition high from the three breed options, from the four studs in attendance, it was no wonder that prices and figures increased from the previous year's sale.
Once again it was a very even and quality line-up of rams, which all displayed the rich, white wools and constitution the Angenup brand is renowned for.
Woodyarrup's loyal long-term commercial clients joined some newer faces and interstate interest at the sale, along with strong support from the State's stud and nucleus fraternity, who bid intently through to the final lot and rewarded the Dewar family with one of the strongest sale results this ram selling season.
The air crackled with anticipation and a hush descended over the Hillcroft Farms crowd as they sensed the gravity of the occasion, when prices steadily increased by tens of thousands of dollars for one very special UltraWhite ram.
With better seasonal conditions, strong sheep prices and a wool market which is stronger than the same time last year buyers bid with intent right through the catalogue, pushing prices to a high of $8000 for a Poll Merino ram and $2500 for a White Suffolk sire.
