They understand what the prime lamb market requires and sell their lambs from 43+ kg live weight seasonally, from five months of age. Prime lambs need to ‘hit the ground running’. They need to be born with ease, mothered well, and grow quickly to finish, reaching a saleable age as early as possible. The farms rams are selected for structural correctness, growth, muscle and good fat coverage. Fat coverage not only means good eating quality of the meat, but excellent maternal traits in the ewes retained for breeding.
