Previous Production Sales
4 September 2008
The 193 rams on offer were all sold at an average of R7 333 to produce another SA record turnover. This was the fourth consecutive sale at which Konsortium-Merino bettered the record turnover for a Merino ram sale in South Africa.
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.
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 .
