NARACOORTE cemented its reputation as holding the country's showpiece first-cross ewe sale, with the national record broken once again last Thursday.
For their November store sheep sale, Elders Jerilderie, yarded 6450 mixed age ewes, and young Merino wether lambs last Friday.
Farmers are being drawn to the shedding breeds to avoid the management hassle of shearing, crutching and flystrike in longwool sheep.
