Assessor Comments
This is the lead draft of Nareen Station bred merino wether lambs. These lambs are bred on Nareen and are part of the Nareen Station Annual Production Sale. Nareen Station aims to breed sheep that are highly profitable and easy care. The breeding objectives in the commercial flock are to have adult sheep which are 18-19 micron and capable of cutting large quantities of white, bright wool on a plain bodied sheep. These lambs are ideal to purchase for wool production, further fattening or future export markets. These lambs were bred in Victoria at Nareen Station and were trucked to Mt Benson in January to further grow out on irrigated lucerne. Please note that the vendor has approx 1000 wether lambs in today's sale.
