YOUNG SIRE & GENETIC IMPROVEMENT GROUP
- Superwhites is a group of White Suffolk breeders who are focused on producing White Suffolk rams that contain the best genetics for prime lamb production.
- The group has been in operation across Australia since 1995 and collectively the group produces around 3,000 rams annually.
- Superwhites Breeders are located in most of the major sheep producing regions of Australia.
- Superwhites uses LAMBPLAN as a tool to aid in comparison of sheep across flocks as well as in identifying the best genetics in Australia for use within the group.
- Superwhites members are improving their genetics faster than the average of all terminal sire breeds for all commercially important traits.
Involvement in Lambplan
- Superwhites uses LAMBPLAN as the genetic benchmarking tool to aid selection decisions and enable valid comparisons across flocks.
- The group foster excellent data quality with most members achieving Gold status, the highest data quality standard within Lambplan.
- By using link sires and progeny testing a young sire team each year, Superwhites flocks have strong across flock links meaning that the LAMBPLAN evaluation within Superwhite flocks is more accurate.
- Superwhite flocks are improving their genetics faster than the average of all terminal sire breeds for all commercially important traits as can be seen in this genetic trend graph.
