A subcommittee of the North East Merino Breeders Group and other co-opted members run the North East Victoria Sire Evaluation site. The site committee are listed in the table below. The North East Victoria Sire Evaluation started in 1997. The 2018 drop progeny are the twentieth evaluation since 1997. Ewes are randomly allocated, ensuring an even number of each age group is allocated to each sire.
