2018 Auctions:
The Suidplaas records shatter

DOHNE MERINO, AUCTIONS  |  OCT 9, 2018

The records tumbled at our Suidplaas auctions this year.

That’s as demand remains strong for the dual-purpose Dohne Merino breed – thanks to rocketing meat and wool prices internationally.

During our August auction, we achieved the highest average ram price we’ve seen in the past 16 years.

Our price averaged R14,583 per ram, and 100% of our rams were sold at the auction.

Shakespeare Farming, outside Riviersonderend, proudly acquired our star ram for R35,000 – the best price for a ram at the auction.

Of the 66 buyers registered to participate in the August auction, local farmers, Amerika Landgoed (based outside Bredasdorp) bought the most rams – as they have done in previous years.

Altogether, 950 young ewes were sold (the January and August auctions combined) – all the ewes on offer. And here we achieved an average price of R2,440.

NOW WE’RE PREPARING FOR OUR JANUARY 2019 AUCTION.

We’ll have 85 rams on offer, as well as a number of young ewes. We’ll have more info soon on this event.

Wynand summarises the 2018 year for Suidplaas Dohnes:

“The demand for good breeding material is strong, and that’s exactly what we offer at Suidplaas. So thank you – and congratulations – to all our faithful clients who joined our auctions, and to all our new clients. We look forward to seeing you in January.”
