Namoi Dorper Sale

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 weaned

 

Douggie Lambs  29thNovember2009

dscf2782 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
