I am Willem Grobler, from the Pdrino Merino on the farm Vlakfontein. We are here in Trompsburg district in the South Free State. This year is our 18th auction. Our focus is absolutely on quality wool, and together with it, a balanced animal with good meat characteristics. And then, we like them with premium wool. That is what people are looking for out there. The products which are made from the fine wool, is absolutely (if I can use the English word) high-end. This is where the money lies. We would like people to take part in it. We absolutely strive to breed the most economic sheep. An animal that can survive in all areas in the country, with the best genetics that we try to bring into the animal, to bring out the best in that part where he finds himself in the country. To do so, any farm will gain. Our offering this year are 3 000 commercial animals, of which 2 000 are wethers, with plus/ minus 5 months of wool. We will also be offering open-ewes, which can still lamb one more time. After that, we will follow on with our ram auction. We offer 63 rams, fine and super-fine.

We are absolutely prepared to give the extra step to walk the path with you. We invite you all out heartily to be part of this auction.
