Breeding Objectives

To breed genetically superior meat sheep based on accurate performance recording under commercial conditions so that clients can select rams with estimated breeding values to suit individual management and market requirements.

The main traits selected for are:

  • Structural correctness
  • Low birth weight
  • Lamb survival
  • Early growth
  • Moderate fat
  • High muscle
  • Worm egg count
  • Eating quality
  • Temperament
 

We use Sheep Genetics Lambplan, the genuine genetic improvement programme as a selection tool with emphasis on Trade $, Export $ and Lamb 2020.
