In today's episode...

G’day, you mob!

Get this: A Tattykeel Australian White ram was sold for a world record-breaking $165,000 at the stud’s on-property auction at Oberon, NSW. Which makes this the highest price ever paid for a meat breed sheep at an on-property auction!

Whiteface ewes have been used in breeding programs for centuries as a good yielding animal that produces excellent lambs. The pure white face color is thought to be a recessive gene and often appears in conjunction with other genes that produce a non-white colored coat.

The winning bidders, David and Natalia Ellingsen, SA, are very happy to have secured these world-class breeding animals at such a bargain basement price.

Today’s episode talks about the sheep industry in Australia, why we don’t have many shearers anymore, and the ethics of changing animal genetics to respond to market demands.
