"VISION FOR THE FUTURE"
RAMSGATE’S vision for the future sees a truly dual purpose, next level genetic package that ticks all the boxes in striving for a low maintenance, robust and highly profitable converter of pasture or fodder into protein and elite fibre.
These animals must meet the demands of an ever-increasing population calling for a cease to mulesing and the ethical treatment of animals. Shearing takes place at 6 monthly intervals, producing elite fibre bundles that shear, handle and process extremely well and thereby producing 19 micron, 65 -75 mm length at 3.5 – 4.5 kg cut, extracting market premiums.
The ewe base must be highly fertile with an increasing emphasis on fat cover leading to lower maintenance costs in tough conditions, with higher conception and lamb survival, whilst wether lambs finish and convert feed quicker to turn off earlier.
In striving to meet these goals and continually improve, technology and strict visual assessment are paramount. 20 years of using Classings Ltd Bill Walker | Breedelite Data Recording | Electronic Tags | Merino Select ASBV’s Member Muscle Scanning | Pedigree Matchmaker | Fleece Weighing | Micron Testing and recently DNA Testing of all stud ewes entering the nucleus flock, means more pedigree leading to greater ASBV accuracies and predictability in your genetics.
Recent genetic infusions have come from likeminded progressive studs including ≈ Leahcim ≈ Wallaloo Park ≈ Sohnic ≈ Nantoura ≈ Ridgway Advance ≈ Mumblebone.
