Data is driving many key decisions across our society and it is accelerating our ability to use it more effectively across livestock breeding and production.
Agricultural Benchmarking is showing dual purpose sheep are still delivering some of the highest returns per hectare across Australia. Demand for ethically produced wool and meat is escalating and having impacts across our pricing grids.
Pooginook’s strategy is to deliver you a mules free high-performance animal, proven and ready to go to work in your environment. Combining our scale, extensive data and know how it redefines the potential of delivering more lambs and elite wools end-customers are demanding.
With consumer demands continuously driving for better welfare standards, Pooginook is committed to breeding a sheep that is mules free. In 2020 we made the decision to move the poll stud to mules free. In 2021 we moved the horn stud this way.
We will continue to combine visual and ASBVs to breed a dual purpose merino that is mules free, profitable, ethically raised and can handle multiple climates.
We believe our breeding objectives below are going to achieve optimal commercial performance and ensures Pooginook and our clients are in-line with consumer demands.
