"We are using Pooginook genetics as the scale and data integrity allows selection of rams that have the ASBVs and phenotype that match our breeding objective. We are working on a flock with soft, white, stylish wool on a fast growing, fertile and meaty ewe."
Rob and Mandy Taylor
"Our family mixed farming operation has been using Pooginook genetics for over 40 years. The dual purpose merino enterprise produces heavy fleece weights consistently above 8.5kg of 20micron wool in adult sheep, with lambing percentages of 120%. High yielding carcases and early maturity contribute to strong meat sales, whilst surplus sheep are keenly sought after by restockers, making for a profitable package with various income streams. We have a focused breeding objective and match the ASBV’s when selecting rams."
Rick and Jenny Robertson
"We aim to breed a fertile, plain bodied, uncomplicated and mules free sheep that thrives in our difficult environment. I don’t have any difficulty finding rams that suit my criteria because of Pooginook's big investment in DNA genomics and their strong focus on breeding a modern merino. In 2020 our ewes cut $70 worth of wool and 98% were scanned pregnant."
