Pooginook aims to continue improving the maturity pattern of the sheep. We look for animals that grow fast early in life (up to 300 days) and slow down as adults (>18 months of age). Fast early growth is key for commercial purposes. However, balancing fast early growth with improved carcass traits and moderate AWT, is important to help minimise increasing adult body weights.
The 2020 drop rams, 90 days post weaning, gained on averaged 230 g/hd/day. The top 500 rams gained on average 307 g/hd/day.
