Millswyn ram sale

By Country News

A Millswyn ram sale was held on October 2, selling 43 White Suffolks out of 50 offered at an average of $1046.

Millswyn's Helen Morgan has been breeding stud sheep since 1975. "I've had 33 rams with triplets,'' she said.

“These rams are fast growing with good eye muscle.

“I'm very pleased with them this year, they're looking tremendous after a fairly tough season.”

Ms Morgan had agents and repeat buyers attend the event.

“You breed what you think the customer wants,'' she said.

“When they turn out close to what they want, it's very rewarding, even though it's a struggle with the year we've had.”

Rodwells branch manager Tyson Bush said the rams carried as much cover and weight as others he'd seen.

“They are a good even run of rams considering the season, it's been tough out here.

“It's good to see return buyers, we're happy with the quality of Helen's rams.

“We've done Helen's sale for five to six years and would like to thank Helen for her continuous support,” Mr Bush said.
