Stud rams on sale

By Country News

Pepperton Poll Dorset and White Suffolk rams produced by Roger and Dianne Trewick at Elmore will be up for sale on October 15.

Run by Glasser Total Sales Management, the Trewicks will offer 60 Poll Dorsets and 40 White Suffolks.

With a combined 530 breeding ewes, the Pepperton Poll Dorset flock ranks 17 points above the Lambplan breed average for Carcase Plus index, while their White Suffolks are 12 points above.

‘‘Buyers received tremendous value and congratulations to those who were active and purchased, but in general it was an opportunity missed by the many lamb producers who did not at least come and compare the high quality on offer and reward the Trewicks for their outstanding efforts,’’ Glasser Total Sales Management sale manager and auctioneer Michael Glasser said after last year’s sale.

■The Pepperton sale will be held on Monday, October 15 at the Elmore Field Days site from 1pm with inspections from 11.30am.
