The Armdale Poll Dorset Studs will offer 200 Poll Dorset rams at the annual stud and flock ram sale, to be held on-property at "Armdale", Marrar on September 27.

Principal Garry Armstrong believes with seasons becoming drier, it was important for seed stock producers to be able to produce lambs that finish easier on minimal pastures.

"With this year's grass-fed rams recording EMA depths up to 50mm, clients will reap the benefits by turning lambs off faster," he said.

All Armdale rams are backed up with performance figures displayed on sale day.

With the lamb market reaching a new level and prices consistently around $8-9 dollars per kilo being the "new normal", what an exciting time to be a lamb producer.

All indications are the next five years look very promising, with Australia's sheep numbers at a 100-year low and world demand increasing faster than the rate of production in Australia.

Armdale sired lambs were amongst the record-breaking prices reached for lambs sold at the Wagga Wagga Livestock Marketing Centre in 2019.

Producers should feel confident in seeking the best genetics available to maximise returns.

The Armstrongs believe the Poll Dorset breed has the most consistent body shape and fastest growth rates to give prime lamb producers the edge in both the domestic and export markets.

Rams need to deliver consistent performance to give producers maximum confidence in the ability to achieve specification for premium markets.

"The first goal of any successful prime lamb enterprise is to get live lambs on the ground and then have them grow as fast as possible," Garry said.

"Armdale rams have the correct neck and shoulder shape to allow for lambing ease.

"Our clients use Armdale rams because they perform, delivering the type of lamb they need to lift their enterprise.

"Producers are seeking rams that produce even lines of lambs, with fast growth that allows for a quicker return on investment.

"If producers are looking for a quality line up of 'value for money stud and flock rams', this year's draft of rams will not disappoint."

Prior inspections are welcome at any time.
