The Performance Corriedales – Focusing on Profits

The Performance Corriedales Group have been focusing on three profit driving traits:

  1. Growth,
  2. Fertility
  3. Wool Cut

Shared Young Sires – better genetics, more accurate ASBV’s

The Performance Corriedales Group shared sires program has seen 2-3 of the best young sires used by all members (the sires are listed below).

The success of this breeding program has seen more accurate ASBV’s across the group and more importantly gains in the three profit driving traits – growth, fertility and wool cut.

The sires that have been used to date are:

These are in addition to top top performing NZ rams having been widely used.   

Continued focus on good genetics across the group will see further advancement in making Corriedales a relevant and profit driven breed for all.
