Six kilometres may not seem like much for those living in rural areas, but being that far across the SA-Vic border has had a huge impact on the Schroeder family’s lives and even changed the location of their Gunallo stud’s ram sale.

Brad Schroeder says he and his father Ray agonised over what to do for their September 3 sale, with their clients spread equally across SA and Vic.

They have decided to hold the sale not at their Panitya, Vic, property but 10km into SA at a friend’s hay shed near Pinnaroo.

“We were told South Australians that come across would need to isolate for 14 days but the Vics can view the rams prior to the sale without isolating and make their selections and then bid on AuctionsPlus,” he said.

“We’ve already had some ringing wanting to come and have a look at the rams.”
