Ram sale to be hosted online
Unfortunate news those who were hoping to attend the largest Merino ram sale in Australia… for the second year in a row Hamilton's P&A society have moved their annual ram sale online.
The difficult decision was made by the committee due to the current uncertainty surrounding COIVD-19 restrictions. Originally planned to be held at the Hamilton Showgrounds, it will still be held Tuesday 3 August 2021. President of Sheep Connect, Dr. Kathryn Robertson said the trade conference will be postponed until later this year, with 250 trade site displays cancelled.
"We're very disappointed to have to cancel the trade part of Sheep Connect but we will put the ram sale online.”
“Last year we ran the ram sale virtually and it was a success … this year we're going to do the same and hopefully get the same support. So that will be on Tuesday... and the conference we hope to run in person later in the year so that will be postponed until then." She explained.
