A COMPLETE clearance of Mt Ascot Merino rams on offer showed the strong demand for quality merino genetics.

Repeat buyers were very active and strong bidding saw a complete clearance of rams on offer.

Paddock rams and stud rams were on offer at the sale.

Buyers of the $6000 ram, Ray and Brenda Kneipp, Glen Farm, Dundee, NSW, travelled from the New England region. They have been buying rams at Mount Ascot auctions for the past seven years.

"Mt Ascot rams are very big sheep, their size is putting more size into our sheep," Ray Kneipp said .

"There is no compromise of wool quality, they have beautiful wool and produce a good large-framed meat sheep, which is now becoming more important with rising prices for lamb and mutton.

"Although Western-bred the rams suit New England conditions as well."

Mt Ascot's 128 stud rams sold to average $1591 sale of 48 paddock rams grossed $39,000. Total sales grossed $242,600.

Mt Ascot Merino Stud principal Nigel Brumpton was pleased with the sale.

"We could not have wished for a better result, the single-lot rams averaged $1915 and penned rams averaged $1593," he said.

Charlie, Lachie and Felicity Brumpton also made a stud sale debut with their Jolly Jumbucks Poll Merino Stud.

The top-priced Poll Merino ram sold to $2800 and their rams reached an average of $1618.

"It's a strong wool market this year and with lamb and mutton prices strong, there is a strong demand for dual purpose rams," Mr Brumpton said.

Justin Higgins Elder's Livestock, Mitchell said the Mt Ascot sale had good attendance from NSW and across Queensland.
