CURRENT STOCK SIRES.
Stock sires at Lowerye are selected in order to breed strong, well fleshed, fast growing rams capable of breeding easy fleshing, quality prime lambs weighing 40-50 kgs from a North Country Mule ewe. Stock rams themselves must carry a suitable level of finish at these weights and not be raw or too lean. Rams must be at the top end of the Sire Reference Scheme in terms of EBV for growth rate and muscle depth. Recently scrapie genotyping has been used extensively with all ewes being tested for scrapie resistance and all stock rams being of the genotype ARR/ARR, the highest level of resistance. Semen is for sale from several of these proven rams.
