Confident ram selection and purchase

Rams are purchased on one day of the year but their effect on  your flock lasts for many years. Make sure you buy the right genes for production, quality and disease resistance. (Download your copy of the booklet "Australian Sheep Breeding Values - A guide for ram buyers" below).

MERINOSELECT and LAMBPLAN breeding values help to select rams that will breed the best progeny for you.

RamSelect: A practical one day workshop building confidence to:

  • select rams for all breeds
  • define your breeding objective
  • assess rams using figures and visual assessment
  • prepare for the auction or selection day
  • invest in rams for production and profit

 

Make sure you buy the right genes for production, quality and disease resistance.
