Tahara Action hosted by Baarrooka
May 3rd, 2010 by Julie

After months of preparation, the Tahara Auction of generally white suris was held on the weekend. It was a great success in that all of the lots, except for one (that Dianne didn’t want to sell anyway) sold to enthusiastic bidding. It was obvious that those present had done their homework, with particular lines hotly contested and the older proven females bringing in higher prices than the pretty young things on their first fleece. Congratulations to all buyers.
I would like to acknowledge the help of Andrew Townsend and Megan Bear for setting up, and Jillian Holmes, Brioude Synnot, Jen Hall, Deb Patti, Amelia Marshall and Hans & Christine van Poppel  for their help on the day. Thanks also to auctioneer Col Broughton who kept the Auction moving and everyone laughing. The Strathbogie CFA Junior Fire Brigade and their mentors did an excellent job of feeding everyone and Russell was kept busy with tastings of Baarrooka wines.
It was a gorgeous sunny day and the farm looked magic. A few lessons learnt for next time, but voted by all, a success.
