He offered 34 Poll Dorset rams at the Gelantipy property, with local and interstate buyers snapping up the Tattykeel bloodline animals.
“It went right through the line, right down to the tail end – the tail end were making as much as the top ones,” Mr Hodge said.
Mr Hodge said onenew buyer came from Wagga Wagga, with others travelling from Cooma (NSW) and East Gippsland.
“A few more are interested in Tattykeel based bloodlines, they can buy a Tattykeel ram – which is from one of the top studs in Australia – a bit cheaper,” he said.
The 45th sale attracted about 40 buyers.
“It was better than last year, because we cleared so many rams,” he said.
