Annalara White Dorper rams reach $7000 for new on-farm record

Annalara White Dopers, Dubbo, celebrated a full clearance of rams during its 16th annual ram sale on Wednesday, where a top price of $7000 was reached.

Overall 86 White Dorper rams sold to a $7000 top and $3424 average, while 14 Ultra White rams sold to a $3500 high and averaged $2714.

In the female offering, three stud White Dorper ewes sold to a top of $1000 three times and average, while 26 stud Ultra White ewes sold to a top of 500 and an average of $459.

The commercial offering had a pen of 88 commercial White Dorper ewes sell to $300 a head, while 64 commercial Ultra White ewes made $400/hd.

Annalara stud principals Stephen and Jack Cresswell said the sale exceeded expectations and it was the best line of rams they had offered.

Jack said there were a lot of repeat buyers but approximately a quarter of the buyers were new clients, including one buyer from Tasmania.

“This sale would be our top sale for averages and number wise it is also the largest we have had,” he said.
