The fourth Aloeburn Poll Merino ram and commercial ewe on-property sale held at Boree Creek was undoubtedly a success.

Stud records were broken on Monday when 56 of the 60 rams sold to a top of $5500 and averaged $1905.

The stud's previous top price was held from their inaugural on property sale back in 2017 at $4700, which had now been smashed by $1200 and the sale average on their 2019 sale was $1415 now up by $490 this year.

A line of 500 autumn and spring drop commercial ewes were offered at the start of the sale selling to a top of $360 per head on two drafts to average $348 per head.

It was the ram Aloeburn 190208 who topped the sale after he was secured by first time buyers the Dodds family, Oaklands Pastoral, Cumnock. The ram was one of the stud's favorites and sat with a reserve throughout the sale.

The young sire weighed 92.5 kilograms and sat in the top 10 per cent for post weaning weight of 8.52, yearling weight of 12.59 and post weaning weight of 0.97, yearly scrotal circumference of 3.58 and had a DP+ index of 173.77.

The ram had a fibre diameter of 19.4, standard deviation of 3.3, coefficient of variation of 16.9 and comfort factor of 99.3.

Buyer Edward Dodds said it was his first time buying from the stud so he wanted to invest in the best ram.

"When looking for our ideal ram we look for three main points; length, breadth and depth," he said.

"The ram's wool crimp was outstanding along with the length and overall correctness."

The Dodds family also purchased a further two rams, Aloeburn 190177 for $2000 and Aloeburn 190054 for$1600. Volume buyer Hamish Paton, Morven purchased six rams to average $1400 also loading four of the five ewe lots.

Stud principal Jodie Green and family were absolutely thrilled with the sale results.

"We are so confident in the quality and accuracy of the figures we provide, the data we collect, the way we present the rams are working well with our clients," Mrs Green said. The sale was conducted by GTSM.
