Trigger Vale Poll Merino & WS Inspection/Open Day

August 24 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

While Covid travel restrictions and the movement towards remote Auction Plus bidding at our annual sale was the reason behind our initial inspection day in 2019 the extremely positive feedback from clients has resulted in it becoming an ongoing feature of our ram selling program. With ram numbers at our sale increasing dramatically over the past 5 years to keep up with demand the reality is that is becoming difficult for clients to make their selections on sale day. Our team is also aware that we are spread very thin with clients on sale day and the inspection day allows access to discuss in depth our breeding program or the merits of individual rams.

The inclusion of an inspection day of the Trigger Vale ram sale calendar has come at the expense of our biannual information day which have been so well attended over the past 20 years. To address this, we have come up with the exciting initiative of having a short theme-based information session for one hour starting at 2pm. With the recent change in our Federal Government, we believe the likelihood of a ban in mulesing in the short term has never been higher so our first “hour of power” will focus on this subject.

Speakers will include

Mark Ferguson NeXtgen Agri – genetic tools available to target mules free Merino’s

Andrew Bouffler – Our 20-year journey resulting in Trigger Vale being Australia’s leading mules free genetic supplier

Representative from Responsible Wool Standards – what’s involved with RWS accreditation and the significant wool premiums being achieved.

While we are not advocating that commercial producers should cease mulesing right away this information session will give people some options position themselves for the inevitable ban on mulesing.
