TAS Country : September 30th 2010
Friday, October 1, 2010 Tasmanian Country 21 The Stock Report STL1105776 Order at www.aaatags.com or Ph: 0419 608 570 Lowest cost NLIS approved sheep ear tags direct from the manufacturer to you! Fine time for producers WOOL REPORT Eric Hutchinson SALES continued this week in Melbourne, Fre- mantle and Newcastle. Medium-micron types were strong in Melbourne, with solid gains on the back of good competition. Newcastle, usually one of the best sales, did not disappoint. Spinner types were well supported by Italian and Chinese in- terests and prices for 16-micron and finer types rose 3 per cent — all against the strongest Aust- ralian dollar since 2008. Demand fundamentals re- main strong, despite the fact that the trade in these ultra-fine types was the most acutely affected by the global financial crisis. After two years, stocks of yarn and fabrics have been run down and demand is starting to return to pre- GFC levels. This, com- bined with a better season in Australia, has seen availability of these very fine types significantly re- duced. viii Paperwork is not some- thing farmers enjoy, but we remind all producers that completing the AWEX National Wool Declaration is important and should be submitted along with the specification list. This at- tention to detail ultimately helps us better service the changing needs of cus- tomers, locally and over- seas. Family in poll position BIG WINNER: Simon Male from the Aberdeen stud with Andrew McLauchlan from Valma and the top-priced ram which sold for $11,000 at the Australian Poll Dorset show and sale. THE McLauchlan family’s Valma and Rannoch Poll Dorset studs have had a successful few months, picking up awards at some of the country’s top shows. The studs have also sold rams in both Victoria and new South Wales, earning some impressive prices. At the recent Adelaide Royal Show the family won the Junior Champion and Reserve Senior Cham- pion ram titles. The stud also had a successful time at the Aust- ralian Poll Dorset show and sale in Bendigo earlier this year. The McLauchlans won a number of classes and went on to sell all their rams offered, including one for $11,000 and another ram for $9000. Rams from the two studs have been sold into almost every state of Australia this year. The top-priced ram was sold to Simon Male from the Aberdeen Stud at Henty. The stud also had the highest objective measure- ment points score in the prestigious Performance Ram class which measures eye muscle area, fat cover and body weight to give a carcase yield figure. On Wednesday the fam- ily held their first main- land private sale at their new property, Cooloongat- ta at Tarcutta in New South Wales. Twenty rams sold, averaging $2290 and making a top price of $6000. The family will hold an on-property sale at Valma Downs near Whitemore on November 10, offering 140 rams.
