Since 1965 the Ridgehaven Poll Dorset stud has been run with a focus on producing top quality, commercially focused animals.
Structural correctness, fertility, ease of lambing, growth rates, muscle and fat cover and wool type have been a basis for selection from the start. In the last four years, the stud has worked with meat processors and UNE to accurately identify genetic lines with superior lean meat yield, intramuscular fat (IMF) and eating quality.
Ridgehaven has seen the benefits of carcass measurement and how this can be used for genetic gain and it is now an important annual aspect of their breeding program.
The Ridgehaven ram sale will not only be held in person on property on Thursday, 10th September, but will also be interfaced on AuctionsPlus.
Next Thursday, 27th August, will be an open day where the rams and ewes can be viewed.
For the safety of all attending, on the open day and on sale day, COVID-safe measures will be in place.
