“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.”
