Merino Lifetime Productivity Trial

Strong interest has been shown for the joint Australian Merino Sire Evaluation & AWI Lifetime Poductivity Merino Ewe Trial to be run over 4 sites for a period of 10 years with the intention of finding out “why it is that some sheep keep on keeping on and others fail?” There was a wonderful response from Merino stud breeders in nominating sires. Unfortunately only some were able to be included but a big thank you to all and we look forward to following the results.  The sites and list of rams for these trials at Harrow, Victoria; Pingelly, WA and Temora, NSW can be found on this link.
