The Royalla Merino Stud will offer fine and fine-medium rams at its on-property sale to be held on Tuesday, September 12.
The animals on offer will include progeny of artificial insemination sires Bundaleer “Oscar” and Thalabah “Sarg”, as well as naturally mated Royalla-bred rams, including “Beckham”, a son of Nerstane 9.10.
Poll rams are by Lachlan 77 (fine-medium) and Middleview “Royce”.
The rams have grown well following a magnificent season in the Wallendbeen area.
The previous year’s hoggets have averaged around 90 kilograms liveweight.
The wool on the rams is of good quality.
Royalla exhibited the third-highest points fleece at this year’s Sydney Show for the third year in succession.
Royalla blood maiden ewes continue to perform well in local competitions, with placegetters in both the Crookwell and Boorowa competitions.
This feature is supported by:

Royalla Merino Stud will also have sheep on display at the South West Field Day in Harden.
The Royalla stud was founded at Queanbeyan in 1980 using fine-medium Koonwarra bloodlines.
Over the years several top Koonwarra, Merryville and Merryville daughter stud sires were used to produce a large frame sheep carrying a fleece around 19.5 microns.
Upon moving to Wallendbeen AI has been used extensively with pleasing results, lowering the micron and increasing the fleece weight and body weights.
Royalla aims to breed a large frame productive wool sheep carrying a 70’s/66’s wool with a micron around 18.5 to 19.
Royalla Merino Stud owner Winston McDonald welcomes all existing and prospective clients to this year's on-property sale on Tuesday September 12.
The stud is located in Wallendbeen which is approximately 20 kilometres from Harden and Cootamundra.
