Semen Sire Challara 150245 has been entered in the 2018 Drop Balmoral Vic. Sire Evaluation, 2018 Drop Muresk W.A. Sire Evaluation and the 2018 Drop S.A Sire Evaluation. The early results from progeny in the Balmoral trial is encouraging. Full results should be available by September. The progeny of the Terrick West semen sire bought at the Classic Sale in 2017 are about 5kg heavier on average than other family groups with a good type of wool.
“Wool, ewe and lamb prices to the abattoir are fetching very good prices within the last 12 months and certainly gives us confidence with breeding this type of easy care and productive Merino.”
“One new thing we are doing this year is dna testing the rams for the poll gene, among a few other new ideas.”
