Maternal Index Development

Maternal Index Development

September 08 2023

We are currently collecting information on flock structure and output information on commercial operations who

Join Merino ewes to a Maternal sire (e.g, Border Leicester) to produce first cross sheep

Breed from first cross ewes

Purchase Maternal rams for a self-replacing flock

As indexes are developed for industry, please consider commercial production system data as opposed to data from your ram breeding flock when completing the survey.

If you are a commercial producer who has more than one production system, please fill out all relevant surveys. The survey takes approx. 40-60 minutes to complete.

Thank you - we appreciate your feedback.
