    38th Annual On-Property Ram Sale


    Little Range, Cunningar Road, Boorowa NSW

    The 80 May/June 2014 drop rams in this year’s sale catalogue (an increase from 70 rams offered in 2014) will be available for inspection from 10.00am, with the auction to commence at 1.00pm.

    To assist with your selections, the sale rams were mid-side sampled on 12th August 2015 and fleece tested by Riverina Wool Testers, with the averages being Micron 18.83, SD 3.41, CV 18.25, CF 98.96 of the rams selected for the Ram Sale.

    On the day of the sale, these Koonwarra paddock raised rams are not shedded, so these young rams are acclimatised to natural conditions, be it weather patterns or grass availability. They will be 15 months old and will have just over 5 months wool on them. The rams were shorn on 16th April 2015, for their Greasy Fleece Weight percentage.

    Their current Body Weights will be done in the week prior to the sale and displayed on the individual sale pen cards.

    They are in good working order, and well grown with good body weights.
