The stud's sheep are well-known for their ability to reproduce at very high rates and with their distinctive carcass conformation, the Ridgway Advance genetics are rewarding commercial clients with their bottom line.
Ridgway Advance Clients are getting exceptional lambing % and outstanding results at renowned ewe sales, wool auctions and lambs processed over hooks.
By the stud fine-tuning both the meat and wool components within the flock, enables clients to breed sheep that compete well in both markets.
Ridgway Advance was the highest ranking sire from 16 entries across three Sheep Genetics Indexes - DP+, MP+ & WP+.
He was trait leader for GFW, CFW, YWT, HWT and FAT and ranked the most favourable with the Classer’s High Tops/Low Culls grading.
In the Classers' grading component of the trial
RA150103 (Sire RA 082) had 21% above the average progeny in the top draft (highest % of all)
Interesting to see the strong correlation between the balance of good carcase data & the classing results.

Thanks to the success of the stud's breeding program, the stud flock is very even in type and culling rates have decreased to a very low level enabling David Karen and Devon Ridgway to offer their breeding ewes yearly.
