Kirkdale to host on- site lamb sale at Evandale
KIRKDALE Stud at Ridgeside, Evandale, is the second oldest registered Southdown stud in Australia.
Now run by fifth generation Andrew Hogarth, the flock currently consists of close to 100 ewes.
Focus is on producing structurally sound, smooth shouldered, long bodied and wellmuscled rams with the aim of easy lambing and producing fast growing lambs for the prime lamb industry.
Kirkdale had another successful year in the show ring, exhibiting reserve Champion Southdown ram, Royal Launceston Show, Reserve Champion Southdown ram, National Southdown show, Geelong, and also taking out supreme Southdown exhibit at Royal Hobart Show.
For the first time, the stud is having an on-property ram sale on November 16, conducted by Webb & Woodiwiss Livestock Marketing.
