The highest priced ram in the sale was Suffolk Lot #25, a twin RR ram tied for the highest rate of gain in the test @ 1.18 lb/day. Suffolks ranged from $500 to $1,100 for the top Suffolk #25.

The top indexing Katadin, Lot #27, a triplet RR ram, sold for $850. The other 3 Katadins ranged from $300 to $800.
The 3 Polypay rams were offered as a choice of all three at once. Lots #41 & 43 went to the top bidder for $625 each and the third one, Lot #42 went separately for $600.
The Shopshire ram, Lot #35 went for $700 after active bidding. We were also interested in him - he had the 4th highest weight /day gain, but there were some very interested Shrop breeders there!
The Merino sold for $300 and the Southdown was "walked".
Thanks to all of the purebred consignors who bring these rams to test so we all can benefit from buying the best of the performance tested rams! They don't all make the cut for the sale.
