The annual on-farm lamb sale at Orari Gorge last Tuesday was a successful day, with 5400 genuine hill country lambs sold on a solid market given the current environment, PGG Wrightson agent Rod Sands reported. Buyers mainly originated from mid and south Canterbury, with several repeat customers in the mix. All lambs were progeny of the property’s own sires, with a Romney, Romney-Texel and Terminal stud part of the farming operation. Ewe lambs were small to medium types and averaged just over $87, while male and blackface mixed-sex averaged $109.50.
