~ Sheep especially bred for Kangaroo Island Conditions ~
While our breeding objective is simple our selection process is extensive.
The more we record the more our clients are able to select rams that suit there own breeding objectives.
We embrace variation on Berry Partners Deep Dene as it allows us to breed sheep that suit any production system where one of the key traits is high CFW.
Some of our other selection criteria include low WEC (worm egg count) to reduce drenching frequency. Birth weight and Growth to decrease turn off time for merino and terminal lambs. Staple length, colour and density to ensure wool grows freely without colour or fleece rot. Maternal ability to ensure ewes are raising their lambs. We measure all fleece quality traits to ensure wool is a lower micron and has good even formation.
