488 rams @ R6 701 average

For 2008 Konsortium-Merino sold 488 rams at an average price of R6 701 at five sales held under the auspices of MerinoSA. The group sells the most Merino rams on official ram sales annually. Since their first sale in 2001, they have sold 2 203 rams at an average of R4 852.

At their 15th production sale, held on Dombietersfontein, Victoria-West, Jaco de Bruyn, Ghoemie Human, Jan Swiegers and Stefan Scholtz, all from Victoria-West, paid the top price of R38 000 for a silver merit ram. The second highest price was R20 500, bought by Christo Briers Louw from Agter-Paarl.  All 193 rams on offer were sold at an average of R7 333 for Konsortium's fourth consecutive SA record turnover. The 1 511 ewes on the sale, averaged R921. The highest price per ewe was R1 500 for pregnant trademark ewes.

This was the first time that Konsortium ewes, with special pink- and purple eartags, were on offer. The Konsortium brand managers use the eartags to differentiate between the branded ewes, approved ewes and recommended ewes. Guests were particularly impressed by the quality of the surplus ewes on offer.
