Crux Dohnes held their very successful sale on the 9th of February 2017 on the farm De Put of Dohne president, Mr. Koos Vosloo. This extremely large sale offered and sold 3259 ewes and 111 rams, rendering it the second largest Dohne Merino sale in South Africa. The overall average price for stud and commercial ewes (including cast for age ewes) of R1693 serves as confirmation of the demand for all types of Dohne Merino ewes. The 111 rams were sold at an average price of R11207. Lepat Farms once again bought the highest and second highest priced rams at R62000 and R44000 respectively.
