A total of 51 Australian White rams were on offer during Tuesday's multi-vendor sale at Narrandera on account of the Gilmore family, Tattykeel, Oberon and Josh Clinton, Camden Valley, The Oaks.
Bidding was quick and determined throughout the sale and a complete clearance was achieved with a top price of $5000 paid twice by repeat buyer Brock Sims, Springhurst, Victoria, for a pair of Spring 2018 drop rams from the Tattykeel draft.
Mr Sims was attracted to his selections for their evenness through the backline and rump with terrific balance and outlook.
"They had great carcase characteristics and I like the full shedding trait," he said.
Mr Brock said he preferred the Australian White breed for their quite temperament with his lambs turning off at heavy weights.
He is in an upgrading program and intends to run a pure Australian White flock.
