Breeding the All-Round Poll Merino

 

 
SHEEP THAT PERFORM

 

Breeding principles at the Ridgway Advance Poll Merino stud, Bordertown have always been correctly balancing all attributes needed in a Dual-Purpose Poll Merino. Importantly coordinating high reproduction, whilst maximizing meat and quality fibre production to strike the correct balance.

This balanced approach enables the Advance Poll Merinos to adapt well in all environments and reproduce at high levels while competing well in commercial markets.

The Ridgway Advance sheep are very distinctive in appearance with their deep square heavy frame and a pronounced tall presence. They produce a fibre of the highest quality that is bright, bold and deep crimping.
Consistently over the last twenty years large AI programs have been undertaken, averaging a thousand ewes per year and also in the last decade substantial ET programs, which has assisted the development of the genuine genetic line. 
Subsequently the Ridgway Advance sheep are now breeding with strong genetic vigour and very predictable outcomes. A very even genetic line of poll merinos that does not move far from the mean.
The goals that were set years ago at Ridgway Advance, are everything that you are seeing today from the wool to the shape of the sheep, while maintaining the same focus and philosophies.
