After a complete clearance of rams in both breeds last year, the Castle Camps Border Leicester and White Suffolk studs of Ian and Sue Carr look forward to the coming ram selling season.
This year the stud will again offer 70 White Suffolk and 70 Border Leicester rams at its annual sale on Friday, September 28.
The rams have come through a tight summer and autumn but with a bit of extra feed and some sunshine they are starting to fill out and should be good by sale day.
Ian and Sue invite inspections on sale day or before the sale.
This year’s sale will see the first rams from some of their new sires. In the White Suffolk section two sires represented for the first time will be Anden 15/108 (purchased for $4000) and Castle Camps Kuzz 15/26 (an AI son of Ramsay Park 201). Both rams have bred well and will have some excellent rams in this year’s sale. The sale will also see the last offering of sons by Woolumbool 12/789, a ram that has left his mark on the stud with almost 300 progeny.
The Border Leicester section will see the first sons of Gleneith 15/320, Ellingerrin 15/280. Another ram with his first progeny for sale is Duenclin Cut Out 15/683 who was purchased as a ram lamb at the Duenclin dispersal sale. Coming from the renowned Shaun line, and probably the last Shaun, he was given the name Cut Out. These rams have some very promising sheep in their first draft of sale rams. Adding to these will be sons from proven sires Castle Camps 12/228 and 12/347. Complementing the line-up will be two AI sires Johnos 11/83 and Inverbrackie 14/8041. Again, many of the rams offered will have negative WECs (worm egg counts) a trait that very important at Castle Camps.
At Castle Camps, stud ewes are run under commercial conditions with importance placed on sheep with natural doing ability.
