Macquarie year in review

Sheep were tested this year with an extremely dry autumn that turned into what became an incredibly wet winter and September flooding. The Macquarie Dohnes have handled this extremely well. James classed out ram weaners a couple of weeks ago and was impressed by the growth, staple length and nourishment. Key traits that have been our focus.

The Global Dohne Conference was an outstanding success.It was good to see many clients attend this international event. Thank you for all those that supported the event and Michael O’Brien for giving a welcomed talk.

Flock ram sales have once again been positive with over 400 rams so far been sold for this selling season.


13th Annual On Property Sale

Our 13th annual on property sale was postponed due to flooding and turned out to be a resounding success. 146 rams sold from 153 rams offered (the second largest offering of dohne rams in Australia) topped at $8000 (equal highest in Australia) and averaged $2042. Six clients couldn’t make the sale due to the inclement weather.

Congratulations to Stephen and Di Perry who purchased MD151937 a son of ‘Tom’.
