We were pleased to read the results of Lambplan as of the 15th July this year which indicated that Sandown’s measurement policies are paying dividends.
Sandown Samms recorded results listed below.
1st Sandown 276/08 by San541 (Mike)
3rd Sandown 74/06 by HVN 102
There were six on the first page which were Sandown sires.
1st Sandown 200/08 by San541 (Mike)
The first six ewes on the first page were Sandown bred ewes. Ten out of 17 on the first page were Sandown ewes.
YOUNG RAMS IN LAMBPLAN:
1st Sandown 90/10 by Sandown 276/08
Six on the first page were by Sandown sires.
We are pleased that our measuring appears to be going in the right direction but we are very mindful of structure and wool in our visual appraisal. Fertility is also a priority.
Our young ewes have not been measured and put into the system at this point of time.
