We presented our best sale team yet, in an increased offering.

All rams in this sale team were trait leaders in at least 3 key production traits, and the average of the DP+ index values was in the top 3% in Merinoselect.

There were numerous rams with values in the top 1% for post weaning weight, eye muscle, fat,  number of lambs weaned, and clean fleece weight. Additionally, all had some degree of worm resistance as we strive to breed a productive yet low maintenance dual-purpose sheep.

Included in the 70 rams offered was a special ram with one copy of the Booroola gene for fertility. A single copy of the Booroola gene increases ovulation rate, on average, by 1.6 ovulations per cycle which typically equates to one extra lamb born.

We also had a ram with a CFW ASBV of 41.4  -which is very close to the highest value recorded in Merinoselect- and is also a trait leader for growth, worm resistance, staple length and scrotal circumference.

                        

Last year we participated in a trial with Murdoch University to see how well movement sensors can match up a ewe and her lambs in order to record pedigree. This year we are involved in trials investigating fetal losses between scanning and lambing, and another looking at the incidence of triplets in a flock and how they can be best managed.
