Easy Shearing: Sheep that have been selected for plain bodies and high fleece weights. Making the Plevna Merinos an easy and popular choice for shearers.
Yes we still use local shearers and Yes they are happy with our sheep.
Growth Rates: Our sheep have been selected for daily weight gain for the last 20 years and remain one our most important measured traits. (Plevna was the first merino stud to utilise growth rate figures through the Dept of Agriculture at Cowra)
Fertility and Good Mothering: Lambs weaned per ewes joined. Over the past 35 years we have painstakingly chiselled away at the industries sleeping dog, FERTILITY. Our ewes and our clients ewes continually scan well and lamb well. At Plevna, we do a lot of work with the female portion of our stud operation by removing poor mothers from our ram breeding nucleus. There are no females in our stud that have failed to rear lambs as a maiden.
See our testimonials and breeding and research section for the impact our sheep have had in commercial operations.
