A ram bred locally has achieved a high price at the National Dorper and White Dorper Sale held in Dubbo recently.

The ram was bred by the Gett family and fetched $12,000, almost tripling their previous best price of $3750.

Co-owner Mark Gett said he knew the ram would attract strong interest.

“We always thought he would make good money but $12,000 was unexpected,” he said.

“There was a lot of interest in this particular ram because he is big, 130 kilograms, but still has great conformation.

“He is very structurally sound, functional and carries himself well.”

The ram was bred at the Gett family’s Yarrie Lake road stud which they started 10 years ago.

The Getts also sold two other rams at the National Dorper Sale, one for $6000 and one for $2800.
