Sheep Parentage Test

The Sheep Parentage test provides a ‘full pedigree’ – that is linking a lamb to its dam and/or sire – along with identifying polled or horned sires or dams in Merinos.

Sheep Flock Profile Test

The Flock Profile Test delivers genomic predicted breeding values (scaled to ASBVs) allowing you to compare the flock average to the industry average.

The Sheep Horn Poll test identifies polled or horned sires and dams in the Merino breed.

Genomic testing offers substantial advantages to sheep breeders. It allows for more accurate selection of breeding stock by analysing DNA for desirable traits, leading to faster genetic progress and healthier sheep.

Breeders can target specific goals like wool quality or disease resistance, and ensure accurate parentage records. While there is an initial cost, the long-term economic benefits outweigh it. In summary, DNA testing empowers sheep breeders with precise genetic information, leading to healthier, more productive flocks.
