On Friday September 1 Trigger Vale Poll Merino and White Suffolk studs will be hosting the 40th on property sale making it one of the longest continuous ram sales in Australia.
Stud principals Andrew and Mandi Bouffler believe this year’s draft rams in both breeds will be without doubt the best ever offered.
This observation isn’t an opinion but based on factual evidence according to Andrew.
“When you invest as much time and capital as we do in artificial insemination, pedigreeing progeny, genomic profiling, weighing and measuring all the traits that drive clients commercial profitability one of the paybacks is you get a clear picture of the genetic progress Trigger Vale is achieving,” Mr Bouffler said.
“This is in the form of EBV’s (Estimated Breeding Values) generated from Sheep Genetics which you can graph overtime to highlight our genetic progress.”
Two weeks prior to the sale on Friday August 18 they will also be holding a biannual information/open day.
This feature is supported by:
There will be sessions on wool, improved management techniques, genetics, potential commercial EID benefits and future lamb supply chain feedback changes.
A large sample of Trigger Vale sale rams will also be penned for inspection and this day represents a great opportunity for old, new, and prospective Trigger Vale clients to gain greater insight into the industry they operate in and how Trigger Vale genetics can contribute to their continuous goal of improving sheep enterprise returns.
Trigger Vale with the help of some wonderful industry sponsorship will be covering the cost of the day. A $10 donation to the local Urangeline Hall committee for lunch is the only cost. Registrations open at 8.15am with the day kicking off at 9am. RSVP before August 15 to attend.
The Bouffler family welcomes both old and prospective clients to their on-property Sale on Friday September 1.
Auctions starting at 12.30pm. Inspections are welcome prior to the sale by appointment or starting at 9am sale day. Lunch will be available from 11.30am.
