Livestock Market Update: Wellsford Romney flock dispersal attracting national interest
Buyers from New Zealand wide set to attend dispersal of 99 year old Romney stud
Buyers from around the country are set to attend the dispersal of one of New Zealand’s highest profile Romney studs next month.
Kikitangeo Romney just out of Wellsford was started in 1922 by the father and uncle of current stud principal Gordon Levet. Now 88, Gordon is retiring and the stud no longer fits with his daughters’ and son-in-laws’ plans for the family farm.
In what will be one of the most anticipated sheep dispersals for at least a decade, around 700 stock will be sold, separated by sire and age groups into lots ranging from half a dozen to around 25 sheep.
Gordon has managed Kikitangeo since 1951, during which time he has been a frontrunner in breeding for resistance to worms, making the sale a must attend event for anyone interested in Romney genetics.
