GWG Dohnes held their second production sale on the 3rd of February 2017. This relatively young stud in the Dohne Merino industry offered 40 high quality rams for sale as well as a compliment of 237 6th and older ewes. The average price for ewes of R2310 are an indication of the overwhelming demand for Dohne Merino ewes. Dohne merino ewes proved their mettle during the drought and it can be expected that demand for this valuable genetic resource will still increase. The average price for rams was R10225 with a highest price of R 46000 paid by Mrrs. Lombaard and Schoeman for an individual ram.
