TRADIE BREEDING PROGRAM
UNMATCHED FOR HIGH QUALITY TRADE LAMBS WITH ADDED LAMBING EASE AND RAM LONGEVITY
The LAMBPRO TRADIE combines Southdown and Poll Dorset genetics into a specialist terminal sire focused on the domestic market. Southdowns have long been regarded as the leaders for meat quality in the industry and the recent Sheep CRC progeny tests have demonstrated the breed’s superiority for marbling.
By combining high growth, high muscled Poll Dorset genetics, with high marbling, early maturing Southdown genetics, the LAMBPRO TRADIE offers lamb producers an easy lambing, early maturing product that is in high demand by the domestic market. Careful selection has ensured this is achieved without compromising high early growth rates.
The TRADIE has significantly better feet and leg structure resulting in greater longevity, ensuring better purchase value. Harder black feet are a significant benefit, and as the rams have a lower adult weight this results in less pressure on feet and legs as they become older.
The TRADIE is receiving widespread praise from the meat industry for its ability to produce high marbling, high muscled lambs with outstanding colour and presentation.
The TRADIE should be a consideration for hogget mating in crossbred flocks or for producers targeting the high-end domestic market.
