2021 December Newsletter

As the year draws to a close our thoughts go out to those having had a difficult harvest due to the inclement weather and to those loved ones that have passed. On a positive note, we are midway through the embryo flushing of our elite high performing ewes with the first two programs yielding a remarkable 11.7 and 9.5 transferable embryos per ewe. These results will allow us to impregnate 800 recipient ewes with our best genetics. A big thank you to Greg and the Central West Genetics (CWG) team. Continue reading

As stated previously, the wool quality and cut would match any merino enterprise and the carcass shape and growth rates would far exceed any. We are currently flushing 50 elite ewes. Elite sire 19-1457 to be used extensively in our upcoming AI and ET programs. Continue reading
