North East Vic

Background

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.

Location

Dookie College, The University of Melbourne, Dookie, Victoria. After a brief hiatus the North East Victoria Sire Evaluation site has been relocated back to Dookie. This enables us to teach the students at the college and have them help at critical times during the evaluation. We also offer the third years a chance to complete projects for their university requirements using the data from the sire evaluation progeny.

Breeding Objective

The breeding objective is for a good medium size ewe to handle the difficult terrain and produce 100% lambs. The aim is to produce 1 kg wool per 10 kg body weight with an average of 18.5 micron and with a long, bright and crimpy staple.
