Stag sale draws strong bid yield

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - By GRANT BRYANT

A wide se­lec­tion of veni­son and tro­phy sire stags went un­der the ham­mer at the an­nual Re­mark­ables Park Red Deer Stud sale last Fri­day, yield­ing a good sales re­sult. Stud man­ager Phil Daw­son said many of the stud’s loyal cus­tomers from through­out the South Is­land were in at­ten­dance, as well as many lo­cals. ‘‘The auc­tion went as well as we ex­pected, and some of our really big boys sold for nice prices,’’ he said. Veni­son sires out­sold sires bred for the vel­vet yield, but the stag pic­tured left – a four-year-old tro­phy and dual pur­pose sire – sold to South­land’s Gary Bor­land for $7200. ‘‘That sale was a great re­sult for a great stag, and we’re really pleased with the sale to Gary, who is one of our really loyal cus­tomers.’’
