2023 has been a busy year with continued interest in Nudie sheep and I'm often asked what makes our animals different ?
Performance recording is the answer and the transparency that comes with it. In 2023 we will record approx 2500 new animals and collect a vast amount of detailed information about them. This data allows us to make continued genetic gain in economic areas.
We have completed data collection for the first year of a 3 year project building information around existing traits , plus shedding scores, shedding pattern, tail length, horn/poll and birth coat. All animals have been genotyped to increase accuracy of breeding values also.
Be sure to check our July 23 newsletter and my You Tube presentation from the Becoming a Nudie day for more details.
