KINGSVALE Supreme Rams on Friday recorded its most expensive ever sale at "Roseville", Kingsvale, with 64 Poll Dorset rams sold to buyers from across NSW.

In opening the sale – conducted by Delta Livestock and Property auctioneer Cameron Rosser – stud principal Tony Manchester said rain had been scarce this year, having recorded about 260 mm for the year.

Tony Manchester talks about his sale.

He said the rams had been on crop for about a month already, a bit earlier than usual.

Yet enthusiastic bidding opened immediately.

Hugh Duffey, "Hillside", Crowther, bought the most expensive ram, at $2600, and grabbed another for $2300.

James Brown, of Landmark Bathurst was buying for Simon Lindeman of Redgum Grazing Partnership, "Stoney Creek", Boorowa.

Mr Brown bought 12 rams for Mr Lindeman's 570-hectare property.

Mr Lindeman later said he was pleased with the purchase.

There were 26 rams passed in, which surprised Mr Manchester a little, but he said several buyers were no shows.

Yet he took heart from the prices, if not the clearance rate, and said it was a clear indication he was doing something right, because most buyers had returned from earlier sales at “Roseville”.

I really think it's a wonderful time to be in the lamb industry. - Tony Manchester

The sale averaged $1128.13.

“I measure everything you know and have done so for years,” he said.

Mr Manchester said he had been focused on increasing eating quality for many years.

“I think it’s a wonderful time to be in the lamb industry.”
