At Konongwootong Dorsets we aim to produce the type of terminal sires required to meet the many varied methods of producing and marketing prime lambs. An emphasis is placed on breeding rams with large eye muscle; length of carcass/length of loin with high growth rates. We aim at producing rams with balanced performance figures as well as being structurally sound and clear of facial and leg wool - the complete package. We believe it is important to breed sound, robust, minimal care sheep.
All our sheep are regularly monitored for worms and are scratched for scabby mouth.
They have also received Coopers 8:1 x 2 doses. All sheep on the property are plunge dipped off shears, as a preventative measure.
All our sheep are Lamb Plan tested and the stud has a Brucellosis Free accreditation. Our Lambplan EBV data can be accessed at anytime by logging onto the Lambplan website data base page. Our accuracies for Bw, w/w, Pwwt, Pfat & Pemd are consistently in the 60's -70's. We have included Trade and Export indexes as well as the actual figures. Our EBV data is taken from 15/08/15 run.
Our OJDMAP classification is MN2V, and so we are able to trade into S.A. Ost is Brullosis Aredited Free.
As is our usual practice, our flock rams are grassfed and have not been feed any supplementary grain.
We have introduced some exciting new genetics into our stud through our AI and natural mating programs.
Included in this years' offering, will be progeny of Derynock 12-052, 12-364 & 12-117 also K 12-201 (a son of Leenala 10-126), K12-271 (son of SD 10-102) will appear in this year's catalog. All these rams were selected for their muscleing, conformation and robust health. We selected these rams firstly for their visual correctness, then on their carcass shape for ease of lambing and then on the Lambplan figures.
Our Derrynock bloodline is peforming consistantly and producing an even line of rams. Our own Konongwootong bred sires are continuing to perform well. They are producing strong, robust sheep with plenty of length and muscle and extremely short, true downs type wool. The skin value is an very important component to our prime lamb enterprises.
In our own commercial flock, we aim to get our lambs on the ground as quickly as we can and then market them as quickly as we can.
