Ever since Ridgehaven Poll Dorset stud was started in 1965, it has always been run with a focus on producing top quality, commercially focused animals.
Structural correctness, fertility, ease of lambing, growth rates, muscle, fat cover and wool type have been a basis for selection from the start.
In the last four years, the stud has worked with meat processors and UNE to accurately identify genetic lines with superior lean meat yield, intramuscular fat (IMF) and eating quality. Ridgehaven has seen the benefits of carcass measurement and how this can be used for genetic gain and it is now an important annual aspect of their breeding program.
This year the Ridgehaven Ram Sale will be held on property at Cudal on Thursday 10th September at 1pm, and it will also be interfaced live on AuctionsPlus.
On Thursday 27th August, there will be an open day where the rams and ewes can be viewed prior to the sale.
For the safety of all attending COVID safe measures will be in place. For more information contact Ruth Klingner 0438 642 113, Isabele Roberts 0405 098 335 or Floyd Legge 0402 185 727.
