After a late break we received excellent season opening rains which was back up with very good falls over next few weeks. This gave us a very good germination of feed and crops. However the rain did slow down and we have only received light falls since. Being such a late break and with the cold conditions the feed struggled to take off, while there is still enough green feed and we don’t have to hand feed, we are waiting for the spring flush to arrive.
We have been busy doing all our measurement on the rams and ewes over the last 12 months for the ASBV’s and after a small delay due to a technical hitch we have finally received our ASBV’s from Sheep Genetics. Ken has also been and classed the ram and our preliminary sale catalogue is now available. Our figure do really speak for themselves with lots of colour in our catalogue due to a lot of the rams falling into the top percentile bands in Australia giving us confidence that we are heading in the right direction in our breeding program to achieve constant improvement in developing a highly profitable multi purpose merino that can perform in any environment.
