Strong stud interest at Burrawang with Dorpers in demand

There was strong stud interest at the top end of the Burrawang Dorper and White Dorper on-property sale on Monday, with a South Australian operator buying the top two lots.

Dorpers sold to good demand throughout the catalogue, but it was a White Dorper that reached the top price of $20,000.

At auction, 109 of 142 rams averaged $3050. Another 19 rams were bought after the sale.

The top-priced ram, Burrawang 230182, 13 months, sold to Gary and Janice Fiegert of Melashdan Dorper stud, Tumby Bay, SA.

By Burrawang King Kong, the 89-kilogram ram was classified as a stud type 5 with an eye muscle depth (EMD) of 43 millimetres and 7mm rib fat.

Post weaning, he recorded an EMD of 36mm, placing him in the top 10 per cent of the breed.

The Fiegerts also bought the second top-priced ram, Burrawang 230267, another White Dorper at 13 months, for $13,000.
