Lach River Merino Stud has been looking for another impact sire and Collinsville 180641 (named Gladiator) caught our eye at Hay Sheep Show 2019. He was put up for auction at Adelaide Ram Sale in August 2019 where he was purchased for $72,500. The price tag shows how sought after the ram was.

Semen has been sold to NSW, VIC, SA, WA & New Zealand with almost 2,000 ewes joined to Gladiator. We performed an AI and the ET program plus natural joining to 400 ewes. With the lambs ready to wean they look very promising.
