THE support of returning clients has helped drive Amarula Dorper and White Dorper stud to a $29,000 top at its 20th annual sale on Friday.
Hot and windy conditions failed to deter buyers from gathering at the Kirkby family’s Gravesend property, Glenavon, in the hopes of taking home their share of the 115 Dorper and 48 White Dorper rams on offer.
At the fall of the hammer, all 163 rams were snapped up at an average of $3978 for a 100 per cent clearance of the draft, which was 20 rams bigger than last year’s sale.
In a further breakdown of the catalogue, 115 Dorper rams sold at an average of $3730, while the 48 White Dorper rams offered arguably stole the show averaging $4572.
