11TH BI-ANNUAL MATED EWE SALE
Australia’s record price for a White Suffolk ewe was smashed at this week’s Detpa Grove White Suffolk 11th Bi-Annual Mated Ewe Sale.
The new high price of $6500 easily eclipses the $5100 set last year at the Ramsay Park ewe dispersal in South Australia.
Detpa Grove stud principal David Pipkorn said the ewe was a unique blend of genetics and exceptionally good in lean meat yield.View Sale Report
