The 2nd Namoi Dorper sale was held on the 6th of Febuary 2010 again a success. Gunnedah had 50mls of rain overnight prior to the sale and through out the morning ,so it was a little damp and the sheep were carrying a little more mud than we usually see around here…… Great to see some rain! The top ram price $950 averaging $400, the top priced ewe $800 with strong demand for commercial ewes averaging $135.
Thanks to Brian Riordon sale organiser of Glen Erin Dorper Stud and the staff of Davidson Cameron & Co Gunnedah for the work you all put in.
The Namoi Dorper Sale will be held again early 2011.

Douggie Lambs 29thNovember2009
Old Douggie has again given a great little mob of lambs, with average weaning weights 32kg. Douggie was used as a covering ram with some of our fullblood ewes this year. Of the 13 Douggie lambs weaned 11 ewes and 2 rams. Conditions have been very dry, so this time we have weaned earlier than usual to take some pressure off the ewes , most of the weaner lambs are around 80 days
We currently have a selection of commercial rams for sale prices Start from $300 +gst . Check out the for sale page.
The first of Woodensprings Rover lambs have started arriving early November 09, Rover was joined to our young ewes most just 12 months old at lambing. The lambs have been averaging birth weights of around 4kg.
