Herd Statistics

Our goal is to improve the quality of our herd with each successive generation.

Benchmarking, by measuring important fleece characteristics is essential for us to see how we are doing.  Our benchmark year is histogram and on-farm data from the shear PRIOR to the animals' arrival at our farm.  In most cases, this is data is from the 2009 shear.
