Breeding Values – The Next Frontier

 
 

Once we had established the wool type we were after and were happy with the sheep type we introduced breeding values to improve some of the robustness attributes of our animals.

Again to achieve rapid gain on this front we sourced the best genetics in Australasia to achieve our aims and used them directly in the Middlehurst nucleus.  In a very short period of time, the Middlehurst merino has again taken a leap forward with some outstanding young animals evolving out of the nucleus.
