Combined sale produces excellent prices

NEXT IN LINE: The district's newest stud ram breeders Mark and Rose Candy from Mangahauhau Hampshires at Waerenga-o-Kuri make their debut in the ram sales season this Friday at the Matawhero saleyards. "We're really looking forward to it," they said. "We're excited about it." The couple will present 45 of their strapping young fellows(pictured) for sale by auction following the weekly sheep sale. "They are all born and raised on the hills." The combined sale on Friday(pictured) produced excellent prices and a near total sellout, which augers well for the two auctions to come and for the current on-farm sale at Hinenui Genetics.
