Normandy Dohne Stud

Sale Report 2020

The Normandy Dohne ram sale was held in one of the worst droughts in living memory and Jean and Lionel de la Harpe must be complimented on having the courage to go ahead with the auction. The 40 rams were of a very high quality and buyers from throughout the Eastern Cape kept auctioneer Brandon Leer busy bidding briskly on the 15 AA and 25 A rams. No ewes were sold this year due to the drought.

Lot 25 realized the highest price of R23500 which was bought by regular supporters of the sale Kevin and Charl Miles. The average of R7177/ram on a 100% sale was highly satisfactory under the circumstances.
