    The Cameron Family welcome you to join us at The Yanko on Thursday 22 September for our 2022 On-property Ram Sale.

    La Nińa has given us another year of above average rainfall which has led to ideal lambing conditions here at The Yanko. With such great pasture growth lamb survival has been high, marking 162% lambs from maiden twin ewes.

    Our breeding objective continues to focus on uncomplicated animals showing high value fleecesof quality and quantity, with early growth and good reproductive traits. Correct conformation andstructure is paramount in the selection process. The 2021 drop rams are meeting this aim, andpresent as an even line of sires.

    We have completed our fifth year collecting genomic samples of all rams bred, which provides fullpedigree, and aids in the selection of industry leading sires. The 50K genomic test gives an indication of the genetic ability of each animal and this information is qualified by the measurement of fleece, body weight and structural traits at specific age stages. These ASBV’s are further described on second last page of the catalogue.

    The sale with be interfaced with AuctionsPlus. Videos of select rams along with ASBVs will be available.

  • Back in Bendigo for the Sheep and Wool Show

    Bendigo provided a great opportunity to catch up with many familiar faces after a long hiatus. It was an enjoyable event with the industry reconvening to share ideas, discuss the future and compare notes on the last couple of seasons.

    The 12 Yanko and Poll Yanko rams on displayed gave a clear representation of the direction of the stud, being rams that have strong constitution, high wool quality and quantity, uncomplicated skins and data to back it up.

    There was a lot of interest in the sires, in particular Poll Yanko 210006, an E.T. bred ram sired by Collinsville Regal 242.

  • 2021 Ram Sale Results

    The Cameron family achieved a total clearance of 100 rams, with top price of $8,000, for an average $2,600 at the on-property ram sale. It was the first time we have catalogued 100 rams and thanks goes to everyone present on the day and via AuctionsPlus for their competitive bidding and support.

    The top-priced ram, YKO 200123, with 18.4 micron wool, a yearling fleece weight of 37.2 (top five percent) and yearling weight value of 8.3 (top 20pc) was bought by Ray Norman, Glenbrook, Illabo who said the ram “fit his index and would be put into their stud program”.

    All rams have received a 50K genomic test including full pedigree, providing an indication of the genetic ability of each animal. This information is then qualified by the measurement of a number of fleece and carcase traits at specific age stages in the animal’s development. This all adds to the ability to select in confidence sound animals displaying high fleece weights and early growth.

    We hope all purchasers are happy with their selections and look forward to hearing how the rams perform.

    52 Poll and 48 Horned Rams will be offered for sale

    Due to strong seasonal conditions and great depth in the 2020 drop of rams we have increased our offering to 100 rams. The 2020 drop has proven to be an exceptional line of animals, in the words of classer Michael Elmes “the 2020 drop is a great vintage”.

    This depth has made the selection of Stud and Auction rams very easy. All have received a 50K genomic test including full pedigree, providing an indication of the genetic ability of each animal. This information is then qualified by the measurement of a number of fleece and carcase traits at specific age stages in the animal’s development. With all of this information we are confident in our ability to present structurally sound animals displaying high fleece weights and early growth.

    Our breeding objective continues to be focused on fleece weight, early growth while maintaining adult body weight, and a highly reproductive animal. These traits are at times in conflict with each other and a balanced approach in breeding is ensuring we trend in the right direction.
