Castle Ridge On-Farm Lamb Sale

The Harmer family at Castle Ridge Station offered 10,000 poll dorset halfbred and poll dorset merino lambs at their on-farm sale on February 3. There was a large gallery of buyers to witness an outstanding lineup of station-bred lambs.

Lambs sold for $77 to $128, averaging $108. Auctioneers from HRL & PGG Wrightson said the lineup was as good as could be seen in New Zealand for weaned lambs.
