Sale of stud reserve ram  October 2018

170660 is a well balanced ram with exceptional breeding values in production traits as well as being highly worm resistant. He is structurally correct with bold crimping white wool. A heavy wool cutter on a plain body he will be a big impact sire.

 I was persuaded to sell him to Kerin Poll  for $20 000 and he will reside there in NSW. Semen rights are retained by Anderson Rams except for in NSW.

New England July 2018

Anderson Rams (also referred to as Anderson Poll) has progeny in the New England Sire Evaluation and Stud principle Lynley Anderson attended their recent field day in early July. ANDERSON 120096 was tested in this comparison of the progeny of 16 bloodlines which included two other stud sires who have an Anderson ram as a grand-sire. This highlights the importance placed on worm resistance in this area.

 Some progeny groups, including Anderson, were not able to be displayed due to a delay in receiving DNA test results, but luckily there were a couple of Anderson hoggets that had been identified by pedigree matchmaker.

Clovernook Poll weaners with a strong Anderson influence. Great visuals AND ASBVs.

Stud Prinicpal Lynley recently returned from a trip to the World Merino Conference in Uruguay and caught up with some Anderson progeny while she was there. Parts of Uruguay get up to 2000mm of rain annually which is conducive to high worm burdens and are they are using Anderson genetics to enhance their breeding of sheep that are resistant to intestinal parasites.

bluetooth sensors for mothering up ewes and lambs

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 used similar sensors from AWI and 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.
