A 13th Sunnydale White Suffolk Stud sale at Rupanyup presented 100 rams, with 88 finding new homes at an average price of $1514 after going under the hammer of Ross Milne from Elders.
The top two rams sold for $3400 to R. J. Bibby and J. M. Grant and Mirnee Partnership Lockington.
Auction spokesman Andrew Weidemann said the auction occurred on a day ‘where farmers were smiling with a spot of rain and were able to enjoy lunch supplied by Rabobank and permitted to participate on site or online through AuctionsPlus’.
Sunnydale White Suffolk Stud started in 1996 with the purchase of nine ewes and a ram from Depta Grove. The stud has continued to buy some of the best genetics available in rams and ewes from Depta Grove, Anden, Warburn, Ashmore and Ella Matta studs.

Mr Weidemann said the animals had produced excellent growth rates, which supported and confirmed the breed’s qualities.
“It has been very pleasuring to see clients regularly achieving excellent prices for their progeny, which enforces our aims of breeding sheep for the commercial prime lamb industry,” he said.
Flock rams are still available for sale for buyers unable to attend the sale on the day.
