Stock up on top rams

By Country News

If you are looking for a top White Suffolk ram, Katandra will be the place to be on October 3.

Millswyn White Suffolk stud owner Helen Morgan will have 53 rams and 16 ewes with lambs at foot up for sale next month, starting at 1pm.

‘‘All are scanned on LAMBPLAN and are in the top 10 per cent in the country,’’ Ms Morgan said.

Although the stud is highly rated, this won’t be the only highlight.

‘‘One particular ram has a 3.5 for muscle and all have early growth rate,’’ she said.

Compared with other breeds, Ms Morgan said the White Suffolk was very clean in the points and there was no problem with grass seeds and they were an easy lambing breed.

■The sale will be held on Helen Morgan’s property, 625 Tungamah Boundary Rd, Katandra, on Wednesday, October 3, starting at 1pm.
