Our maternal programme focuses on traits that are important for self-replacing breeding flocks and aims for a low maintenance ewe that looks after herself and rears healthy, fast growing lambs.
A feed efficient sheep, bred to consistently deliver more kilograms of lamb weaned per ewe mated than purebreds. Well tested in New Zealand’s tougher hill country.
The result of 40 years of intensive selection and a proven example of NZ’s most widely used sheep breed.
Our Romney rams produce solid results and are proven in FE hot-spots.
A sheep bred to ramp up production through increased lambing, with good milk production, that gets lambs off to a great start and up to weight quickly.
Bred in the sometimes harsh and varied conditions of the Te Anau Basin, catering for the demands of the South Island environment, the Freestone Romney is a highly fecund and efficient ewe.
