The SA Elders Stud Merino Expo was held over the 19th and 20th March, with 11 Mid-North Studs hosting on-property displays for day one and an expo held at Burra on day two with 27 studs presenting some of their top rams.
North Ashrose studmaster Tom Ashby said crowds were up on previous year’s numbers throughout the Mid-North with great interest in South Australian genetics from interstate.
“It was pleasing to see so many people taking interest in the next generation of sheep genetics. There was a sense of positivity during the field days driven by current wool and sheepmeat prices.”
“The field days bring together South Australia’s finest selection of rams and it’s a chance for potential buyers to view their spring selection ahead of the stud selling season.”
North Ashrose took out the Champion Pair of Ram Lambs, and Reserve Champion Ram & Ewe Pair.
