Multi Purpose Merinos offer a genetic package that is high in production, predictable in its gene base, and delivers wool, meat and fertility on an easy care sheep. 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
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM OUTBACK MPM
Paddock run rams – run as large contemporary groups under commercial conditions.
All rams with ASBV’s – on the traits we see as important for commercial productivity.
Lifetime Ewe Management (LTEM) practices in place – we understand that nutritional requirement and genetics go hand in hand.
Science being used as a production tool – extensive use of ASBVs. We are early adopters of new technology ie. AI, ET, Electronic Tag’s and Sheep Genomic.
