Deep Dene Poll 2019 Sale Rams

Lloyd, Christine and Caitlin Berry are proud to present their 2018 drop poll merinos for their 51st annual ram sale. 

~Sale 1st November 2019 on Kangaroo Island~

Berry Partners Deep Dene are very happy and excited to display 75 exceptional rams, all up for Auction at the 2019 Annual Poll Merino Ram Sale.

The 2018 mating season saw four Deep Dene sires and Hazeldean 'Hugh' 3542 evaluated. Being the third year of linking up Deep Dene Poll Merino Sires into Sheep Genetics, they are still heavily reliant on the linkage and accuracy of the linked sire used. 

Linkage was provided through Hazeldean's 'Hugh" 3542 who was selected as he has been used widely around Australia, his linkage and accuracy are exceptional. 'Hugh' is also the trait leader for many ASBV traits and indexes including the MP+ index.  Therefore allowing Deep Dene Berry Partners the perfect platform to benchmark their sires too. Deep Dene have noticed all sires and their progeny have increased in both accuracy and genetic potential throughout 2019 and are positive all commercial producers will be happy with any purchase made.

Deep Dene sires 150542 (between year link), 160318, 160036 and 160052 were evaluated. All sire progeny are exhibiting impressive confirmation, growth and wool characteristics. 160036 progeny are growing exceptionally well in the Kangaroo Island environment, we're really pleased with the progeny between Deep Dene ewes and Centre Plus's 407185 ram. Progeny from Deep Dene's 150542 and 160318 have exceptional staple lengths and confirmation. 

Deep Dene continue to be excited to be bench-marking their figures with rams all across Australia and are seeing very productive benefits in selecting sires with ASBVs for their nucleus and commercial mobs.
