Tweekoppen Production sale 2019
Tweekoppen Dohnes is known for producing Dohne Merinos under completely natural veld conditions of the Southern Freestate. At the 2019 production sale, staged by Wicus Jacobs and Sam Lamprecht, 32 excellent true veld rams were offered and sold at the average price of R6,813. A total of 344 ewes were also sold at the average price of R1,672. The top ram was bought by Sarique Wilken (Silverdale farming) for R16,000.
The “Sentrale KernKudde” was, for many years managed by Wicus Jacobs and served as a “filter” to assist in securing the properties of hardiness and adaptability in the Dohne Merino breed. It is trusted that the Lucernvlei stud will continue to, along these lines, supply veld rams to the industry.
