2016 Stud Ewe Sale

March 2016

The temperature was hot and so were the prices at Newbold’s Poll Dorset & White Suffolk Opportunity Stud Ewe sale last Wednesday 2nd March.

This was our first major mated ewe sale. The loss of leased land prompted the decision to reduce ewe numbers to avoid over-stocking. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all bidders and under-bidders for their support.

The sale drew buyers in from around the state as well as from New South Wales and Western Australia. There were 19 registered bidders, resulting in a clearance of 94 ewes and 15 ewe lambs at a $612 average. Seventeen buyers purchased ewes.

“We very proud of the line-up of ewes on offer today. It was both humbling and exciting to see the number of studs here investing in Newbold genetics.” Bill said.
