Detpa Grove ewe sale success.

THE Pipkorn family, Detpa Grove White Suffolks at Jeparit, Vic, received strong support from far and wide at their eighth biennial mated ewe sale on Tuesday last week.

In the breakdown 75 sold to buyers from five states and the United States, averaging $575.

The highlight was the demand for the first four lots of elite ewes, selected from the heart of the Detpa Grove breeding flock in a pick-of-the pair format.

Each lot contained two ewes that had been used or selected to go into the Detpa Grove elite ET program as donor females.

The successful buyer for each of the four lots could take home their selection of the two ewes, with the other being retained in Detpa Grove’s breeding program. This was an obvious attraction
