The 16th Annual on –property Mount Ronan Ram Sale will be held on Tuesday 2nd October 2012, at 1.00pm. 70 White Suffolk and 70 Maternal rams will be offered. Complementary BBQ lunch and refreshments from 11.00am.
The 2012 sale rams worked hard this winter to forage enough pasture to maintain condition. The best paddocks were reserved for the ewes and lambs, and even they would have benefitted from more feed.
The rams were brought back from our other property to the home farm on the 16th September. They were placed in a paddock of conserved pasture and have really commenced putting on condition. They will look really good on sale day and will be extremely fit and healthy.
As a line of rams, they are outstanding. Their genetic quality is excellent. 6 of the top 13 White Suffolk rams on LAMBPLAN from the 2011 drop in Australia are Mount Ronan rams, and some will be in the auction. The top ranked 2011 drop White Suffolk ram on LAMBPLAN in Australia is a Mount Ronan ram, sired by the outstanding ram MOUNT RONAN 337/10. (MOUNT RONAN 337/10 is the second ranked White Suffolk sire for Carcase + Index on LAMBPLAN in Australia.)
Mount Ronan White Suffolks continue to lead the breed in muscle genetics. The average eye muscle depth ASBV for the Mount Ronan White Suffolk flock is twice as large as the average eye muscle depth ASBV for the White Suffolk breed in LAMBPLAN in Australia. The growth genetics of Mount Ronan White Suffolks exceeds those of the National White Suffolk flock on LAMBPLAN, and the average birth weight genetics of the Mount Ronan White Suffolk flock are exactly equal to National White Suffolk breed average.
As a result, Mount Ronan White Suffolk rams will produce lambs which are born easily and produce muscle mass rapidly, reducing the days to slaughter. Consequently carcase yields are enhanced and producer returns are maximised.
