Each year this month sees us complete our sheep work prior to harvest starting. These tasks include putting rams with ewes after planning the whole program.
Our best young ewes were used for a laparoscopic AI programme, going to several high performance proven outside Sires, and one of our own.
The rams used were:-
- Kintail Park 132345 WA
- Harewood 131836 NSW
- Babirra 132501 SA
- Glen Holme 120424 (deceased)
Ten other rams were used in single sire mobs. We were able to test mate a number of promising young rams to evaluate their progeny next year. With a series of unseasonal rains and unsettled weather, the mating period was deliberately shortened.
