Easy-care | Productive | Dual-purpose

At Palmerston Coopworths we produce
easy-care, productive, dual-purpose sheep
ideally suited to Tasmanian conditions.

Palmerston rams have proven themselves as a perfect fit for Nosswick, providing our operation with a good mix of growth rate and fertility. Bill’s dedication to his stud is evident in the quality of the stock, the comprehensive ASBVs buyers are presented with and the sheer number of high index rams presented for sale. He has a passion for ram breeding and we, the client, have been direct beneficiaries with our flock consistently weaning 150%. Coopworth ewes have an incredible mothering ability, high fertility and an ability to thrive in tough conditions like Blackwood Creek. The progeny are quick to finish with good dressing out percentages and a well-presented carcase.”

“We have been Palmerston Coopworth clients since 2011. The appeal of the Coopworth is its good balance of fertility, ease of lambing, growth and feed efficiency. The Coopworth rams are mated to fine merino ewes producing first cross ewe lambs to be used on another of our farms. Surplus ewes and the wether portion are sold at weaning either as early terminal lambs or as store lambs and are always in good demand. I was attracted to try the Palmerston Coopworth rams as they come with a history of performance recording and there are a good number of rams to select from. The high level of performance recording gives us confidence in the productivity and profitability of the genetics we are purchasing.”
