Anthony Cox, Stud Stock Rural Livestock and Canterbury A&P Association Sheep Committee Member, said that the results were positive.

“There were a few less rams sold this year, but given the current industry climate it was a very positive result with the average selling price up on last year.

“The standard was very high and good rams were sought after. It was great to see that those rams that didn’t go to stud duty were able to be purchased by commercial buyers for a very reasonable price.”
