Ninth Annual On Farm Helmsman Ram Sale to be held 3pm on Wednesday
29 November 2017.
We had a successful sale, selling 150 plus rams for an average of just over 950. Still got a few good southdowns, south south Suffolks and very good Romneys for sale. Give us a call, price is $650 plus GST, wont sell them for any less.
The other major news is I am selling the farm and I am looking for someone to share farm my romneys, southdowns, and south suffolk flocks and keep my annual sale going. I am looking for a genuine stockmen interested in stud breeding, someone who has a real passion for it. I believe its a great opportunity, given the quality of my flocks that I have, and an established widely known prefix, that I believe is synomynous with quality rams. On top of this an established sale that I believe can be moved anywhere in New Zealand if required. So if you are interested please don't hesitate to give me a call (or if you know something that might be interested get them to give me a call). Cheers Ike
190 (approx) rams in total will be offered: comprising of 96 Romneys, 41 Southdowns, 47 South Suffolks and 5 Lincoln Rams.
The sale will again be run in conjunction with Agonline (if you click the highlighted agonline, you can still see videos of those sold in last years sale!)
Note: Anything that is highlighted in green on this website links to a page providing you with more information on the sheep or the sale.
Videos of all the rams are taken around the end of October, together with a liveweight on that day. These videos along with performance data are then uploaded to Agonline. You are able to bid on them from the time they were uploaded, usually towards end of first week of November!
Its an easy way to buy rams, so keep it in mind if you can't make my sale, which I reiterate 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 25 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!
Below is a short video Rural Delivery TV show filmed regarding my sheep breeding operation, that includes the four breeds of sheep, namely romneys, southdowns, south suffolks and Lincolns. Its a short 6 minutes or so about Waidale, and in particular how my on sale works, given I am the only guy who operates an agonline sale in conjunction with an on farm helmsman sale.
Note the Romney ram I am demonstrating on is Waidale 583-14 who is a son of Rawahi 984-12. Both rams have and are breeding exceptionally well, not only are they good sheep but their progeny as they do, have very good SIL figures. A lot of sons of both these rams will be offered in this years Sale.
