    • S​hearing tag A22756 Station Tag 043
      One of the larger rams in the team standing square on his feet, with a big strong head and muzzle and good length of body. His fleece weight was high up at the one year age group shearing and has a very good length of staple with a well defined crimp. This sire’s figures are also very good with a very low micron of 15.3 and a comfort factor of 99.9%, plus the asset of a good fleece weight and frame size, he can definitely increase the profit line of superfine merino flocks.

    • Shearing tag A22758 Station Tag 133
      Another large framed sire with correct stance and well sprung through the ribs into a strong back end. He has a heavy fleece weight with very good cover down his legs and belly wool which with our prices for superfine wool is now a requirement to give extra income to the merino flock. He has a stylish white and bright fleece which has defined crimp, highly suited to the superfine markets.

      A superfine sire with a good frame with square stance and well balanced on his feet. Plus width through his chest, well sprung ribs and solid rump showing his constitution and natural doing ability. These are qualities which develop into better health and fertility when running in the natural environment. In association with his fleece weight and high quality crimp and style of his fleece, this ram has a lot to offer to superfine flocks.
