OMAD White Suffolk stud at Kaniva achieved a top price of $2000 for three of its rams at its second sale.

The purchasers were Hopea Stud at Dadswell’s Bridge, T. Willesdorf and J&J Feder at Lillimur.  

Stud principal Damien Hawker said his second sale had delivered everything he was hoping for.

“It was a total clearance,” Mr Hawker said. 

“We had new and repeat buyers.

“The sheep presented really well and I was really happy with them.

“I know some buyers only bought a handful last year and came back and bought a couple of handfuls this year, because they have performed really well."

Driscoll, McIllree and Dickinson, Nhill agent Chris Barber said there was very strong local competition.

Mr Barber said the sale also drew interest from people travelling from the Wimmera, Mallee and Western District.

Rams also went to several South Australian properties at Bordertown, further into the south east of South Australia and as far away as Kimba. 

Mr Barber said the positive outlook for prime lamb and mutton, along with the strong wool market, had brought buyers out to Kaniva for the sale.

“We are able to produce a top-quality article with the feed we have been able to grow,” Mr Barber said. 

The auction, on September 21, was conducted by Driscoll, McIllree and Dickinson.
