Lamb growth a targeted trait
Our lamb sale strategy is to finish as many of our lambs as possible off mum. This means we are focused on lamb growth rates before and after weaning.
Growth statistics for the recorded flock are:
Weaning weight (average): 33kg
Growth rate: 300g / day
Days to weaning: 100
This is achieved on hills with ewes scanning 180% plus.
Paparata Te Moata station manager Rach Law has been judged Te Kuiti Meat Processors 'Supplier of the Year' 4 times.
She finished with 9,276 lambs at 17.73kgs.
