Haven Park is predominately a prime lamb operation which runs 7500 breeding ewes which are East Friesian, Border Leicester, Corridale cross joined to Poll Dorset. With this combination we are consistently marking 140% lambs and able to sell these at export weights. Emphasis has been placed on twin survival, wool quality and carcass weight.

The 2017 sucker lambs sold very well, in the space of a few weeks all lambs were sent to saleyards and abbatoirs with the top lambs selling for $245 in Hamilton Saleyards (an Australian record at the time) and others reaching that in abbatoirs.

2020 lamb prices were again very good in December, topping the market with LMB at $258.

November / December 2021 lamb selling season has again been very successful with some top drafts going into the Hamilton market over three weeks, whilst the majority were sold over the hooks.

We topped the market each week and on 15th December topped at $330. We think this is possibly an Australian record for sucker lambs for 2021. Our average price for 6500 lambs was $238.
