Multi Purpose Merinos have been bred from a well focused and disciplined breeding objective. MPM sheep offer a genetic package that is high in production, predictable in its gene base, which delivers wool, meat and fertility on an easy care sheep.
Outback MPM is a family owned and operated business located at Mundadoo, in The Marra district, 90km north of Nyngan, NSW.
Our aim is to breed a merino that will compete with the meat breeds for fertility and carcase traits, whist keeping a moderate frame to maintain maternal efficiency, vital in our pastoral environment whilst providing quality wools on a plain bodied, easy care sheep.
Outback MPM sheep require no mulesing, low labour requirement, and are robust and adaptable. They are a highly maternal and fertile meat sheep, producing long soft white wool.
Our flock has been developed through a well-focused and disciplined breeding objective.
We use a combination of objective measurement: Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) together with Sheep Genomics, and subjective measurement on structure and wool traits.
Early growth rates,
high muscle and fat
fertility - conceive & rear high % of lambs
high quality, soft white wool
Low maintenance, easy care sheep
Research over the years has shown us the trade off’s that go with selecting for single traits. All our selection traits are balanced for a maternal merino ewe, with high production and high efficiency.
SURPLUS SHEEP & QUALITY CARCASS
A real income earner when high fertility can be achieved. Red meat protein is increasingly in demand from a global market. Our surplus ewes are ideal for terminal cross lambs and our Merino lamb carcass has all the attributes of terminal breed fat lambs.
EASY CARE SHEEP
We produce a plain body, wrinkle free sheep. No mulesing since 2005 allowing low maintenance with minimal chemical and labour required.
