THE Valma & Rannoch Poll Dorsets bred by And- rew and Keith McLauch- lan at Whitmore will cap off a most successful season with their 49th an- nual ram sale to be held on the property Valma Downs, at noon on Novem- ber 10. The offering of 111 stud and flock rams represent rams drawn from the top 50 per cent of the stud's 2009 drop. Most of the other rams have already been sold. Thirty sons by Valma 623, Australia's leading Terminal sire on Lamb- plan's Carcase Plus index, have been catalogued for the sale. He has a terrific combin- ation of individual figures combined with his excel- lent structure, including a fine shoulder setting. To date this year inter- state stud breeders have eagerly sought his stud ram sires where eight have sold to average $4812. These stud ram clients return to obtain the Valma & Rannoch bloodlines to enhance their already out- standing flock ram sales where high growth, mus- cularity and clean points are priorities. Eighty White Suffolk rams from JS & KA McLauchlan's Leith Stud will bring the total ram offering for the day to 191. SALE TEAM: Fairbank Poll Dorsets, left to right, lots nine, eight, one and seven. 50 top of the drop on offer Founded in 1969, the flock has a breeding objective of structural correctness and secondly using lambplan as a tool to select for muscling, growth and ad- equate fat traits. Performance recording has been utilised since its inception with an empha- sis always being on bal- anced EBVs. We avoid us- ing animals with extreme EBVs, in particular those which are too lean, as progeny from these ani- mals are often difficult to finish, especially in ad- verse seasonal conditions. This year Fairbank will offer 50 top of the drop Poll Dorset rams at the Top of Tassie sale. These top rams include a balance of high performance growth and muscle traits and suitable fat to ensure progeny are capable of finishing in the required timeframe. A fea- ture of this year's offering will be two runs of August drop rams by a combin- ation of the New Zealand outcross sire Windermere 04/0196 (Reserve Cham- pion Christchurch 2007) and our top home-bred sires who continue to pro- vide consistent balance, growth and structure to their progeny. This year the widely used Pine Avenue 06/050 (Pwwt 13.4 and emd 1.1) has been used and this ram has contributed great mus- cle and growth. Also avail- able is our show team including potential stud si- res: Champion Ram from the Hobart Royal (Lot 8), Reserve Champion Ram at the Geelong Royal (Lot 1), Reserve Champion Ram at Launceston Royal (Lot 7) and the Interbreed Cham- pion Ram from Campbell Town show (Lot 9).
