Ewe Comp 2020

Lach River clients have had another good year in the competition, with Melrose Pastoral overall runner up.

They have entered the competition for three years, achieving runners up twice and overall winner once.

Leon, Margaret and Luke Casgrove flocks have come a long way in the competition with their maiden ewes, that last year cut up to 8kgs of wool.

Raw Data

This year we have started collecting raw data in our Stud with the assistance of Rick Power and Sally Martin.

Our young ram lambs shorn at 7 months cut an average of 7.9kg, top of 12.5kg.

All new season Ram lamb and ewe lambs have E tags fitted. We will be recording fleece weight, weaning weight, EMD and fat score.

This is another tool for our stud our main focus is still visual and hands on classing.

Lach River gets its impact

Lach River Merino Stud has been looking for another impact sire and Collinsville 180641 (named Gladiator) caught our eye at Hay Sheep Show 2019. He was put up for auction at Adelaide Ram Sale in August 2019 where he was purchased for $72,500. The price tag shows how sought after the ram was.

Semen has been sold to NSW, VIC, SA, WA & New Zealand with almost 2,000 ewes joined to Gladiator. We performed an AI and the ET program plus natural joining to 400 ewes. With the lambs ready to wean they look very promising.
