Pictured with 2012 top priced ram from "Hillcreston Heights" is purchasers Richard Gee, Tony Gee, from Avoca, Tasmania, Brett Picker, Trevor Picker, Sue Picker, Nathan King (Landmark) and Cameron Picker.  

The sale toper was purchased for $4500 and was from the Snowy family with a micron of 16.4, the ram was extremely stylish in the wool and showing all the characteristics of a stud superfine ram. 

The sale was very pleasing with the stud and selected sale auction average being $1596. 

Private sales after the main auction resulted in another 20 rams being sold for an average of $845.  

We would like to thank all our clients for their support

 Trevor Picker A.M., Murray, Grant & Brett Picker & their families.

Welcome to 2011 Annual Ram Sale (taken from the 2011 catalogue)

It is with much pleasure the Picker family would like to once again welcome all clients and friends to their 2011 28th Annual stud and selected ram sale.

Hillcreston & Hillcreston Heights will this year offer 60 superfine rams all bred for the Italian / Ausfine type wool markets.

With visits to Hillcreston from several mill owners from Japan, Italy and China in the past 12 months the underlying message has been very positive for the finer, better type style wools.

The luxury market very much relies on the world economies being strong and even with the world economies very volatile the clearance rates for superfine and ultrafine wool at retail is gradually increasing. Principals from several wool processing firms have told us this points to a bright future for those able to continue to produce a quality article.

The 'Hillcreston' name and wool produced allows discussion with mill representatives and we are continually reassured and very pleased when discussing wool types and processing issues. The discussion always reverts to style, quality and wool preparation and how these qualities allow for a better product to be processed, processors and exporters are aware of the superior processing ability of traditional superfine type wools.

As the luxury fibre market improves the underlying belief is there will be a greater demand for finer, better type style wools, Hillcreston continues to be one of the very few studs to retain a traditional style crimp while still decreasing micron and increasing wool weights.

This year’s sale rams are very well grown with the crimp definition, style and character in the wool a feature of this year’s draft, the rams also show the structure and constitution that Hillcreston sheep possess. These rams will produce the type of wool required to achieve the premiums available in today’s wool market and into the future.           

The continual repeat buyers and their testament to the quality they are buying is always a very pleasing result for the Picker family.

For further information or inspection of rams, please contact the Picker family or your agent. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those agents that support our annual sale.

Please join us for the 28th Annual Ram Sale on Friday 11th November 2011; we will also be holding our flock selection on the 2nd December 2011.

We welcome our valued clients and all wool producers to inspect this draft of excellent superfine rams. We look forward to seeing our many friends in the wool industry.

 

                                          Trevor Picker A.M., Murray, Grant & Brett Picker & their families.
