Ram buyers - lists of flocks breeding for health traits *** UPDATED ***

We have updated the lists of flocks registered for major health traits based on testing in the 2012/2013 year. Goto the link below to get these.

We have 3 lists related to reducing costs of drenching for gastro-intestinal parasites ("worms"). These are for parasite resistance (WormFEC), parasite resilience and the CARLA saliva test, a component parasite resistance.

There are lists for;

  • Resistance to internal parasites, based on WormFEC testing
  • Resistance to internal parasites based on CARLA saliva test
  • Resilience to internal parasites
  • Tolerance to facial eczema
