Mr Louis Nel and Mr. Carel Nel held an unexpectedly highly successful production sale of Dohne Merino rams out of their Nello stud on the farm Ofra, in the Brandfort district. The sale taking place on the 28th of July 2016, was a fitting farewell to their stud advisor Mr. Wouter Vorster who departed from the area to continue his duties in the Humansdorp area. The success of the sale may partly be ascribed to a very interesting information day before the sale that amongst other included shearing and fleece evaluation of two rams. In total 75 rams were sold at an average price of R10370-00 and a highest price of R18000-00 were paid for a ram bought by van Zyl Boerdery, Bloemfontein
