The 12th annual Mount Yulong Poll Merino stud on-property sale saw rams sell to $3750 and average $1709.

Peter and Daniel Rogers offered 60 rams this year, slightly fewer than 2019 and achieved a clearance rate of 82 per cent.

Daniel Rogers said the sale was a "bit flat" compared with the 2019 sale.

"It's been a funny year preparing for the sale because we rely so much on the shows and Sheepvention - which didn't happen," he said

"We had a couple of new buyers, which was nice, and we had our regular clients, but they bought fewer rams this year.

"It's a general swing towards using more terminal sires this year - and we are just the same.

"We were happy with the line-up which was the best we have ever put up and people commented on that."
