2016 HADDON RIG RAM SALE

RECOGNITION of the depth of breeding in Haddon Rig Merinos was exemplified by new and valued returning buyers from four states who eagerly bid for their sire battery requirements at the Falkiner family’s 33rd on-property sale at Warren, last Thursday, and purchased 164 stud rams for an average $2653.

A total of 139 from 140 Merino rams cleared at auction to a top of $11,000 and an average of $2626 followed by 25 from 26 Poll Merino rams selling to $6000 and averaging $2804. Last year the overall average was $2316 for 160 rams with 128 Merinos averaging $2364 and 32 Poll Merinos $2125. However the increase in ram values seemed to be overlooked by buyers who strived to secure their quotas in this 100th anniversary year of the Falkiner family’s ownership of this iconic western plains property.

Doug and Alistair Wilson, of Lightning Ridge, paid $6000 for the top-priced Poll Merino, a 20.7 micron son of Wallaloo Park 003 weighing 115kg and showing a GFW percentage of 155pc and wool with an SD of 3 and CV of 14.5pc. The Dinning family of Naracoorte, South Australia, paid third top Merino price of $5000 for a son of a Haddon Rig sire weighing 111kg and growing 19.5 micron wool with an SD of 2.9 and CV of 14.8pc and GFW of 121pc. Among the high prices paid for Poll Merino rams John Rae, Pentdale of “Carwell”, Gulargambone, paid $5500 twice in his purchases of four rams averaging $4550.

Reg and Robyn Sweeney and family’s Pinehurst Partnership, “Pinehurst”, Merrygoen, bought one Merino and five Poll Merino rams for an average of $2667 for their self-replacing Merino flock, although they are noted for the breeding of Bindaree stud prize-winning Border Leicester rams. The Merino ram was top of their draft at $4200, a 106kg son of a Haddon Rig sire growing 19.5 micron wool. Jason Ridley, “Glenoble”, Girral, selected five Merino rams for the family’s Merino operation paying to $3200 and a $2760 average.

The Boyd family’s Boowillia Pty Ltd, “Boowillia”, Gowrie, paid an average $2443 for his seven ram selection topping at $3000. Parkes district long standing client, Richard Green, returned to select nine rams for his family’s “Olieview”, Merino flock with the draft averaging $2400 and topping at $2800. Forbes district commercial breeding brothers Chris and Peter Francis, returned to replenish their sire battery and bought 19 rams paying to $3000 twice and a $2221 average. Nymagee district flock breeders the Harley Balowra Partnership, “Balowra”, went home with 14 rams after paying an average $1757 and top of $2400. The sale was conducted by Elders, Dubbo and Landmark Wilson Russ, Warren and Dubbo, with Andy McGeoch selling for Elders and John Settree for Landmark.
