We are pleased to present our best sale team yet, in an increased offering.

All rams in our sale this year were trait leaders in at least 3 key production traits, and the average of the DP+ index values was in the top 3% in Merinoselect. The rams were visually outstanding as well as having the exceptionally high carcass attributes you have come to expect from Anderson Rams.

There were numerous rams with values in the top 1% for post weaning weight, eye muscle, fat,  number of lambs weaned, and clean fleece weight. Additionally, all had some degree of worm resistance as we strive to breed a productive yet low maintenance dual-purpose sheep.

Included in the rams offered was a special ram with one copy of the Booroola gene for fertility. A single copy of the Booroola gene increases ovulation rate, on average, by 1.6 ovulations per cycle which typically equates to one extra lamb born.

We also had a ram with a CFW ASBV of 41.4  -which is very close to the highest value recorded in Merinoselect- and he is also a trait leader for growth, worm resistance, staple length and scrotal circumference.
