Profitable Merino Genetics

Westray Merinos are not a single homogenous breed but are instead a number of different strains of sheep that provide Profitable Merino Genetics and are uniquely Australian.

The main reasoning behind the development of Merinos into a Profitable Merino Genetics breed have been environmental factors.

There are not many breeds of any animal that has shown such resilience and versatility towards being of Profitable Merino Genetics and also able to function normally in Australia's unique climatic conditions. With our skillful and experienced breeding and selection process, Westray Merinos are of extremely high Profitable Merino Genetics.

We use modern technology as an integral part of our decision making to get our breeds towards exceptionally high Profitable Merino Genetics. We have objective methods that assist us to identify an animals genetic makeup and traits which all assist in the Profitable Merino Genetics goal.

We use reliable DNA testing alongside semen insemination and embryo transfer to ensure the highest levels of Profitable Merino Genetics.

The Poll Merino Breeders’ Association of Australia (PMBA) was formed in 1956 and assists breeders such as Westray Merinos achieve Profitable Merino Genetics. The PMBA disbanded in 1977 and was replaced by AASMB who has been maintaining the Poll Merino section in the flock register so we have a lot of information and resources to draw on to ensure Profitable Merino Genetics. Because the development of Profitable Merino Genetics in Merinos has been largely on a 'within flock' basis, Poll Merinos are scattered throughout Australia. Profitable Merino Genetics in Merinos in Australia represents all bloodlines and is categorised into fine, medium and strong wool types. At Westray Merinos, we specialise in Medium Micron Merinos and ensure, through careful selection process, that Profitable Merino Genetics are paramount in all of our breeds.

As Profitable Merino Genetics are essential to maintaining the industry, Westray Merinos have developed a very precise and scientific method of breeding. We have been producing Profitable Merino Genetics Merino sheep from our Peak Hill stud since 1963 and our reputation as one of the leading breeders of this type in the country represents that we must be doing something right. Our Merinos have all benefitted from our procedures and by doing things deliberately different from the rest, our sheep breeds have the highest chance of passing along Profitable Merino Genetics.
