genetic gain

How do we know we are making genetic gain? The performance of our commercial flock is the best assessment out genetics can come under. In the last ten years we have been able to:

  • increase weaning percentage by 25%

  • which has allowed us to join 30% more ewes to a terminal

  • cease mulesing without compromising animal welfare or increasing labour

  • join our commercial ewe lambs at 8 months of age
