One of the biggest challenges facing Australian Agriculture is a rising cost base
Thanks to Westray’s business model, more will be achieved off less

Against a backdrop of escalating cost pressures to Agribusiness in general, productivity and efficiency are the key. Productivity is integral to lowering your cost of production and driving the profitability of your sheep and wool business. Additional productivity allows more to be achieved off less.

Westray Merinos have focussed on skin quality since inception with a view on prioritising production and heritable traits.

Our focus on skin quality involves the combination of high follicle density, staple length, deeply crimped wools with superb fibre alignment and nourishment to repel dust and water.

These skins ensure woolcut is maximised (8-10kg per head) and therefore wool harvesting costs are reduced in relative terms.

By measuring body weight, eye muscle depth, fat, maturity patterns and feed conversion efficiency we have been able to apply the same principles to the carcass traits of our Merino and Poll Merinos. This makes sure we are breeding animals with genuine dual-purpose attributes.

It results in wether lambs that are being sold earlier and young ewes that reach sexual maturity earlier ensuring better conception rates are achieved.

By utilising breeding technology such as artificial insemination and embryo transfer we have rapidly increased our genetic gain

We have been consistently using E.T for the past 12 years and are now compounding these high-performance genetics.

Commercially, this has resulted in lower culling rates through an improved tops to culls ratio. This technology has allowed us to place the same selection pressure on the maternal side of the equation, which the industry had traditionally placed exclusively on the sire side.

Our breeding focus combines visual assessment with measurement and pedigree performance data to achieve balanced genetic gain. Within the stud, ewes are individually mated, lambs mothered to have full pedigrees recorded; this allows identification and classification into various breeding families.

The system practiced maximises control of the various families within the stud and has given stability of a homogenous nature to the sheep, that in turn ensures their chances of transmitting their inherited desirable characteristics to other sheep are maximised.

Our experience guarantee's you will have a positive experience; so optimise your sheep and wool business by embedding genetics that work as hard as you do.

When you purchase Westray & Genanegie genetics you are backed up by year-round support to ensure your genetic investment is maximised.

Poll Merino Rams from Westray Merino’s have been bred to be the finest examples of Merino sheep available today. Our Merino sheep are Heavy Cutting Merinos as they have a high yield and class leading wool. If you are looking for Profitable Merino Genetics then our Merino’s have been perfected over generations to produce high yield wool. As Dual Purpose Merinos, our Merino’s are suitable for both meat and wool production and have been rated favourably on both counts. Our sheep are classified as Medium Micron Merinos as their wool has a fibre diameter of 20.6-22.5 microns.
