June 2017

As part of fulfilling responsibilities as part of being a member of Dohne Council, Allen travelled with some other Council members to Armidale in NSW. We met with representatives of Sheep Genetics Australia and also The Sheep CRC. Whilst there we led another Dohne Breeders Roadshow. This was to share information about possible changes to the way we can achieve good pedigree recording, and also about possibilities of increasing the Genomic data set for Dohnes.

Two days later, we met in Moama on the Border of Victoria with Breeders in Victoria and southern NSW for the next Roadshow. This completed the series that began in Muresk WA and Adelaide SA in March.

June was also very dry and warm. We shore the sale rams in late June.
