Welcome to Waidale

Waidale is a specialist Stud operation in South Canterbury that is focused on breeding rams that meet the markets requirements of an easy care, high fertility ewe that produces fast growing lambs with a high yielding carcass, simple really!

We do this by utilising stockmanship to ensure that all our sheep have the basics: they are sound, can walk, have all the essential quality characteristics that ensure long term performance: and then we apply the performance criteria including the credible gene markers.

By years of doing this we believe we are not only producing rams that look the part on paper, but they are the part and perform accordingly.

Take a look at our web site and if you want to know more about our Romneys , Southdowns , Lincolns or South Suffolks , then don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Eighth Annual On Farm Helmsman Ram Sale  Was held 3pm on Wednesday 23 November 2016.  Note the Ninth will be held Wednesday 29 November 2017

185 rams in total were offered: comprising of 86 Romneys, 42 Southdowns, 48 South Suffolks and 9 Lincoln Rams.  We averaged just over $900 across all breeds.

 Videos of all the rams were taken on 30 October, together with a liveweight on that day. These videos along with performance data were uploaded to Agonline.  You were able to bid on them from the time they were uploaded!

Its an easy way to buy rams, so keep it in mind for next year if you can't make my sale, which  is on Farm Wednesday 29 November 2017.  Note up to the end of the sale itself you are able to bid in real time (or place earlier autobids) against those farmers who actually attend the sale.  We have sold in excess of 20 rams a year via agonline for the last two years, many repeat buyers!  Once you have seen my sheep, it is an easy way to buy them!

If you want to see whats involved in preparing for our sale go to TVNZ on demand, find Rural Delivery, and then click on the17th September 2016 edition and you will see the  6 minute segment on how our helmsman/agonline sale works!  I think its still acessible!
