Current sires

Eight rams are included in 2021 New Armatree Sire Team

Key points

  • Eight rams are included in the 2021 New Armatree Sire Team

  • All sires in the team have been through a rigorous selection process both for physical and genetic traits.​​​

  • All sires have been selected to add to our breeding objective.  ​​

  • All sires have been genotyped. This is particularly important for when we are choosing young rams so that we have higher accuracy ASBVs to select on at a younger age.​​

  • Physical criteria that sires entering our team must conform on include:

    • Teeth and Jaws – these have to be correct even as an adult

    • Feet and Toes – Short, Sharp toes that require little to no maintenance

    • A balanced wool style  - this is a trait important to the first-cross ewe buyer
