Many Queensland sheep producers have been lucky enough to attend the recent RamSelect days held at a variety of locations across Queensland including the most recent at Stanthorpe that was largely organised by Leading Sheep South Consultative Committee member Bruce Toms and featured the Dohne breed. If you have not had the opportunity and would like to attend a RamSelect day please reply to either Alex Stirton or myself. Participants commented that the RamSelect days were excellent with useful information that can be immediately applied to improved ram selection.
The link below has information on the new MerinoSelect indexes that is easy to understand especially the explanation of which index is most suitable for which breeding situation. The note also gives a clear indication of the improvements that can be expected with each index.
