For their 22nd annual Top of the Drop ram sale, Ron and Cheryl Blyth, Blyth Merinos, Adelong penned 110 Poll Merino and Merino rams.

Speaking before the sale, Mr Blyth said he never intended to breed rams for sale to other woolgrowers when he commenced his operation.

"I only thought about breeding rams for myself because I couldn't find the type of rams I wanted," he said.

"But when we started breeding rams for other people you need to be very careful because your integrity is on the line.

"We are honest in our presentation and are very proud of this years offering."
