Well,we have a sheep stud that produces,among other attributes,fine merino wool.
We are a very new stud,starting up when many old type sheep producers are getting out of the business.
Our aim is to breed a multi purpose animal and we are working towards(again)being non-mulesing.
Yesterday we held our third auction.....and it went very well!
I though I would share some photos from our 'special day.'
Now this is what it is all about-checking the fleece.
Everyone has their own system and method.
The fleece is parted and checked for whiteness,softness and crimp.
Depending on your ewes,you choose a ram that will enhance their best features by 'corrective mating.'
Thats all folks!
