Selling for $15,500, the ram attracted the highest price for a Perendale ram at the auction.
Mr Henricksen said he was happy with his purchase.
"I had my eye on this one.
"I thought he was the best."
As their other two rams sold for $9500 and $12,500, it was a very successful sale, Ms Tripp said.
"We put a lot of time and effort into breeding them, so I guess we’re just really happy that people like what we’re breeding."
Gore A&P Association ram fair secretary Joanne Hall said only one other ram fetched a higher price than the one sold to Mr Henricksen.
A Texel ram from Blackdale Stud in Riverton sold for $20,000 to South Otago farmers Garth and Chris Shaw, Mrs Hall said.
