We focus on maternal breeding stock. Accordingly, we have developed our own customized Genovis index, Maternal Worth. The selection criteria reflects the realities of an annual grass-based production system. Growing lambs on grass requires excellent mothering ability and milk production along with growthy lambs that thrive on forage. We weigh all lambs at 50-60 days of age and again at 85-100 days of age when the lambs are weaned. Ewes and lambs receive no supplement on pastures during the entire lactation. Rotational grazing management keeps highly digestible nutrients on offer at all times. Lambs are not drenched until 100 day weights are recorded to place further selection pressure on favorable grass-based genetics. Choose Quality Sheep for optimum maternal breeding stock performance.
