BREEDING 
FOR PROFIT 
NOT HISTORY

Kerin Poll Merino was established in 2009 with the goal to use the traits that made the terminal breeds successful and build them into Merinos. Twelve years later you would have to say without doubt mission accomplished.

The average data set for the 550 2021 sale ram team for post-weaning weight is +7.9 when compared to the industry average of +3.0 the proof is in the pudding. These growth rates were achieved without any compromises to fleece weights which are +26 for this years sale team compared to the industry average of just +13.7.  Breach wrinkle score is in the top 10% for Merinos.

 

Genomics, MateSel and Australian Sheep Breeding Values have allowed us to fast track the improvement of our flock's data and we now have Merinos which exhibit the kind of outstanding growth patterns previously only seen in terminal breeds. This has allowed our clients to succeed in producing an animal with increased fertility and fast growth, that converts grass into profit more quickly than their contemporaries.
