Rabobank Dubbo National Merino Ram Sale and Exhibition 2020. At a meeting on 2nd June 2020, the committee of Dubbo National Ram Sale Assoc. made the firm decision to proceed with a Merino Ram Sale and Exhibition, in a new condensed, two-day format. This will be one of the only live Stud Ram multi-vendor auctions in Australia in 2020.

Observing strict Covid 19 risk management plans, declarations and social distancing, the Exhibition and Sale will run from Tuesday 25th August – Wednesday 26th August. The Live auction (interfaced with Auctions Plus) is to be held on Wednesday 26th August. There will be NO sheep show held in conjunction with this event due to the Covid 19 risk management rules.

The two day event format will be a Merino Stud ram display and pre-sale inspection on Day 1 and a Merino Stud ram display, pre-sale inspection and afternoon Ram sale on Day 2.

Whilst the new format will not allow for social events this year, such as the Rabobank Luncheon and cocktail party and the judging of the Rabobank Australian Supreme Merino, the level of interest that has already been expressed will ensure an exciting couple of days with a totally new look and feel.
