Foreword Welcome to our Te Kuiti Saleday 2021. We are a family based farming operation situated south west of Taumarunui in the King Country. We have a steep hill country farm of 333 ha in a sheltered valley just off the Whanganui river at Kirikau. Our recorded flock has been an integral part of our farming system since 1974, with emphasis on being able to handle the constant challenges encountered on a steep hill country block. We commenced formal FE testing in 1993 after an outbreak caused a devastating effect. The flock has continued to improve to a point where we have now been FE Gold for 8 years. This has been in conjunction with an emphasis on improving fertility, growth and meat yield. For the future, our goal is to maintain the current traits of the flock while further improving worm resilience, growth and meat yield. These traits have been accelerated with the introduction of Beltex sires and using link sires within the Coopworth Genetics Group. Overall our key strategy has been to produce a low-input, high-output flock that is able to thrive within the natural challenges of the environment. We hope you enjoy our sale.

SIL Ratings INDEX

New Zealand Maternal Worth + Meat

DP Capped Reproduction

DESCRIPTION

NZMW+M An industry standard index for dual purpose sheep based on Reproduction, Lamb Survival, Lamb Growth + Adult Size, Wool Production + Meat DPCR

The economic value of more lambs per litter, per year, for 2-tooth and older ewes. Caped at optimum value at 2.13 lambs/ewe

DP Lamb Survival

DPS

A function of 2 BVs (breeding values) - lamb vigour & ewe mothering ability

DP Lamb Growth

DPG

A function of 3 BVs - pre-weaning growth, ewe milking ability & carcass weight

DP Adult Size

DPA

A function of the adult ewe live weight BV

DP Meat (Yield)

DPM

A function of carcass lean yields in 3 carcass regions - shoulder, loin & hindquarter. Yields are deviation for kg of tissue at a standard carcass weight (18kg)

DP Wool Production

DPW

A function of fleece weight BVs

DP Facial Eczema Tolerance

DPX

A rating of an animal’s ability to tolerate an FE challenge, based on the RamGuard system. The level of challenge can differ between farms so this index is most accurate for comparisons within farm & birth year.

Sire Rams 293/16 - A Nikau Coopworth sire from Kate Broadbent, he has been extensively used amongst top Coopworth breeders which has given him a proven MW+M. 1542/18 - A Kirikau Coopworth ram. Our highest indexed sire to date; with best phenotypical traits. 1374/18 - A Kirikau Coopworth/Beltex cross sire. An exceptionally meaty animal with excellent growth scores.
