South Australian bloodlines have a large sphere of influence across the local and global Merino industry, with strong demand for their large frame, heavy-cutting ability, and increasingly good fibre.
This is reflected in the enduring success of the State’s two multi-vendor sales which have consistently seen strong clearances and averages in recent times.
The Adelaide Merino Ram Sale has set the benchmark for multi-vendor sales in Australia, outpacing the average of the Dubbo, Hamilton, Bendigo, and Katanning sales for the fifth successive year.
The Adelaide sale has a long, rich history where the State’s studs produced a number of world-record priced rams in
the 1980s. The recent top prices may not match wool’s heyday but there is definitely an air of excitement around the sale. The sale has a strong stud and commercial client following from breeders looking to take their flocks forward.
Peter Meyer of the Mulloorie Stud said the Adelaide sale had become the ‘mecca’ for Poll Merino rams.
“The standard of sheep in the last few years has really lifted to make it the number one sale as far as multi-vendor
sales go,” Mr Meyer said.
He praised the efforts of the State’s breeders to produce high-quality meat and wool.
“The stud breeders have worked hard with the agents to build numbers so now we have in excess of 100 rams showcasing the broad spectrum of the Merino industry in SA now,” he said.
The Classings Classic ram sale established by sheep and wool classer Bill Walker and his wife Rose has also become a highlight on the SA sales calendar.
Mr Walker is thrilled with the sale’s evolution which started in 2002 to raise the public awareness of progressive studs that were addressing issues affecting the industry globally, mainly in the area of mulesing, flystrike, and skin/pin wrinkle.
“If the sale were to be a commodity and you were to invest back in 2002 you would have to be happy with the progress,” he said.
Each year, Mr Walker handpicks sale rams to ensure they are genuine dual purpose animals.
“The end result has been an animal rich in productivity, exhibiting highly aligned fibre and huge staple length on an early maturing carcase,” he said.
Mr Walker says the size and most times, the growth rates, of the SA Merino type set them apart from those in other states.
