Family affair at Wakool sale

By Rodney Woods

The Treweek family from Wakool will hold a joint ram sale where 119 White Suffolk and 30 Poll Dorsets from the Lauridale stud and six stud and 21 flock White Suffolk Rams from the Induro stud will be up for sale.

Max and Trudy Treweek are in the process of a handover of Lauridale White Suffolk Stud to their son Guy, who owns Induro.

“Our Poll Dorset stud began in 1981 and our aim has been to breed open-faced rams as we live in a grass seed area,” Max said.

“We have stayed very true to the breed type, or as we think it should be, with beautiful white, bare sheep.”

The Lauridale stud will also offer a large number of White Suffolk ewes privately in October and November.

The Lauridale and Induro stud sale will be held on Friday, October 11 from 1pm at 228 Jerrys Rd, Wakool.

Inspections start from 11am.
