Kurra-Wirra Annual On-Site Merino Ram Sale
Friday 1st December 2017
At Kurra-Wirra we have been very focused on current profit drivers such as Wool Production, Early Growth, EMA, FAT and sheep doing ability.
By shifting our point of maturity to a slightly younger age by lifting our PWT we are able to breed a more fertile, higher yielding animal. This started to show effect with a 24% rise in our scanning results in our
youngest and most genetically advanced ewes.
10.00 am Open for inspection & buyer registration
12:30 pm Official welcome & sale commences
Address: 770 Mooree-Culla Road, Culla, VIC, 3315 (see map below)
