Romneys have been bred at Meadowslea since 1926, and have had generations of selection for structure, bone and constitution.
For the last 26 years they have lambed totally unshepherded on our Berridale hill block. The resulting in-built survival sets our sheep apart. They have now evolved into tough, deep-bodied, strong-boned Romney sheep that deliver high performance in adverse conditions.
The Romney ewes are very fertile with great mothering ability. Fertility, both in terms of scanning percentage but also the all-important scanning to weaning survival, are increasing exponentially and our clients are seeing real results!
