Karori  is a member of Sheep Genetics Australia ( SGA) and we are benchmarking our progeny across Australia with all merinos. The Index used by SGA is a benchmark index used within the entire merino industry across Australia. All databases for analysing a sheep's performance have now been collated into a single database and the results are expressed as ASBVs (Australian Sheep Breeding Values)

 

 

 

ASBV REFERENCE:

 

*    NLW= Number of lambs weaned (a positive value is good-this figure is correlated to the mothering ability of the ewe)

 

*    YEMD= Yearling Eye Muscle Depth (a positive value is good-the higher the better)

 

*    YSS= Yearling Staple Strength (a positive value is good-the higher the better)

 

*    YWT= Yearling Body Weight (a positive value is good-the higher the value, the                  more the sheep will weigh as yearlings)

 

*    YWEC= Yearling Worm Egg Count (a negative value is good- the more negative the better)

 

*    20%SS INDEX= Emphasis on moderately reducing Fibre Diameter, maintaining Fleece Weight and Body Weight as well as increasing Staple Strength. Anything above 127 in 2011 is above average across the merino industry.
