Assessor Comments Offering 1480 quality 2nd X Poll Dorset lambs over 3 lots. Impeccably bred & late drop, the McKenzie Properties lambs are bred for performance. Traditionally finished to top quality trade and heavy trade weights, the operation has made the decision to transition to a breeding operation with intention to offer these lambs annually going forward. 100% bred from principally large frame Telang/Maroona 1st X ewes & sired by the lead Shellal Poll Dorset rams these lambs have the breeding & capacity to take through to heavy export weights. Management is top rate, with performance recording a key in the operation & it must be noted that these lambs have gained 250gms/day since weaning. All lambs were individually weighed prior to assessment into tight weight bands, with expected delivery weight of this draft to be 39.2kg. Lambs can not come more highly recommended, and represents a terrific chance to acquire a large line of well bred, late drop, proven performance lambs.
