Hamilton Sheepvention Report
This year’s Dohne lamb auction for charity raised $2000 for the Cooperative Trials Group for Neuro-Oncology (COGNO).
The sale of four Dohne lambs realised $500 a head for the charity.
Australian Dohne Breeders Association president John Nadin, said the lambs were donated by Max and Ian Pilgrim, Minimay, and were bought by Midfield Meats.
The sale was conducted by Landmark auctioneer Andrew Sloan and the buyers were represented by Steve Farley and Keely Price, Midfield Meats.
Mr Nadin said the auction was held in conjunction with the Australian Sheep & Wool Show in Bendigo, but had been moved to Sheepvention for this year.
He said it was good to have commercial wether lambs on display during Sheepvention as well as benefiting charity.
Pilgrim brothers are commercial breeders and the lambs were pure Dohne.
“It’s been a good promotion for the breed as well. That’s a record price for lamb,” he said.
The lambs weighed 53.4 kilograms live, about 27-30kg carcase weight.
The auction in Hamilton followed on from a Dohne and Dohne-cross lamb carcase appraisal day held at Midfield Group, Warrnambool, in March this year.
The day saw more than 20 sheep producers from across Victoria and New South Wales attend.
