Commercially profitable and teaching
One southern NSW prime lamb flock has to be not only commercially profitable but also play a role in educating the next generation of Australian sheep producers.
Lambing ease and growth
Juggling carcass with fertility is paying dividends for the prime lamb enterprise at South Australia’s historic Mt Schanck Station.
Owned by the Evans family, 3320ha Mt Schanck supports a 2200 British bred cow herd, prime lamb flock, potatoes and dryland cropping south of Mt Gambier.
Biodynamic lamb gets nod
Clean, green, biodynamic White Suffolk lamb from the NSW central tablelands has been impressing urban consumers and celebrity chefs alike.
The lamb produced by the Kurtz family, of Oberon, has graced the tables of famed Chinese restaurant, Billy Kwong, and featured in televised cooking shows with Paul Mercurio.
Cash flow plus wool value at Ballyhooley
Early maturing White Suffolk cross store lambs out of commercial Dohne ewes create cash flow plus a wool cheque for NSW southern tablelands woolgrower Dan Carey.
Each December, Mr Carey, of Frogmore, NSW, holds an on-property sale where the Dohne cross and Merino progeny, and cast-for-age ewes are sold alongside each other.
